Something Fishy Goin’On Here!

Fishing Season FactsTrout Season opened April 18th, so we figured an extension on This Week’s Fun Fact from the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission’s Walt Dietz was in order.

Did you know…Pennsylvania has several species of fish from the trout & salmon family pursued by anglers each year, with the native brook trout seizing the title of Pennsylvania’s official state fish! Other trout in Commonwealth inland waters include rainbow, brown & lake trout. Brook & lake trout are the only native trout to our state & are actually members of the char genus related to the Arctic char from the far North.

Checkout the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission’s website at for more fish facts & details on the 2015 Trout Season, along with fun outdoor opportunities including Mentor Youth Days.
