About 53 percent of the trout are stocked prior to opening day, 43 percent are stocked between opening day and the end of May, and the remaining 4 percent are stocked from

October through February of the following year.

Trout season opens on Saturday, March 30, in Southeastern Pennsylvania, including Bucks County. In the rest of the state, opening day is Saturday, April 13.
