While anglers in 18 Southeastern Pennsylvania counties will get a head start on the 2018 trout season March 31, those in the local area will have to wait until April 14.

Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission employees were busy Wednesday stocking brook, rainbow and brown trout in the lake at Northmoreland Park in Allegheny Township.

Plenty more stocking dates are scheduled, including:

• Sections of Fourmile Run will be stocked March 19 and 21, April 20 and May 7.

• Sections of Hannas Run and Hendricks Creek will be stocked April 11.

• Indian Creek in the area of the Route 381 bridge will be stocked April 11 and May 2.

• Indian Lake will be stocked April 24 and May 8.

• Sections of Loyalhanna Creek in the area of the Route 711 bridge were stocked March 1 and 3 and will be stocked again April 16 and 18 and May 7.

• Twin Lakes will be stocked April 5 and 19, and May 4.

Stocked trout come from Fish & Boat Commission hatcheries in Bellefonte and Pleasant Gap.

The minimum size for a “keeper” is 7 inches, and the regular-season limit is five per day.
