Trout season begins soon, April 18th at 8 a.m. to be exact. Creel limits depend on where you're fishing but it's usually 5 trout, measuring at least 7 inches. Anglers aged 16 and over will need to have a fishing license and a trout/salmon stamp, totaling $32.40. Of course, that's in addition to the latest and greatest gear.
We're truly lucky to have a myriad of fishing options here in the Pocono Mountains. If you like fishing lakes, we have 150 of them, none more prominent than Lake Wallenpaupack. If you like rivers, try the famed Delaware, Lackawaxen, or Lehigh. If streams are your thing, go explore some untapped gems like Hickory Run or Tobyhanna Creek. You'd need several years to fish all the water in the Pocono Mountains. See how many you can check off the list this season.
