Something’s fishy at the Susquehanna Riverlands

Yesterday, WCO John Cummings of the PA Fish and Boat Commission worked with our staff at the Susquehanna Riverlands to stock 800 rainbow trout in Lake Took-A-While. Because the lake is frozen over, a hole had to be cut in the ice and the fish were put in through a hose connected to a tank in the stocking truck.

Ice fishing is not allowed on the lake but the fish will be ready and waiting for the first day of trout season on Saturday, April 16th. Get your rods and reels ready and THINK SPRING!

      Warm water fishing is best in January and February.
      Starting again in March, the water runs through the cooling towers before being discharged. As long electricity is being produced, there will be a discharge. Consequently, there is no set schedule.
