Trout Season Begins
4/11/2014
 
 
 
Streams, lakes and ponds across the region will be filled with anglers casting their reels for the first time this season. And to prepare volunteers with the Paint Creek Watershed Association and Kiski Conemaugh Stream Team were stocking several waterway's in Windber Friday afternoon including Weaver Run. It's the first time in 80 years thanks to a grant from DEP that helped to install a treatment system to clean up decades worth of mine discharge. While the streams were being stocked anglers were at Gander Mountain picking up last minute supplies before the big day. The season officially starts at 8am Saturday. Those 16 and older must have a valid fishing license and are allowed to catch up to 5 fish, each one required to be at least 7 inches long. A challenge most say they can't wait to take on.
