There are more than 83,000 miles of streams and rivers in Pennsylvania, and many of these miles contain trout. Most trout species can be found in Pennsylvania, such as: Rainbow, Brown, and Brook trout. Pennsylvania trout fishing can be quite good in rivers, streams, and lakes. In 2007, the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission plans to stock approximately 4.2 million adult trout into waters within Pennsylvania that is open to public angling. These are the types of numbers that get stocked into the waters of Pennsylvania each year, so the trout population remains quite healthy.

I grew up fishing for trout in Pennsylvania and as a matter of fact it's where I met my fishing mentor, who indecently was the best trout fisherman that I've ever known. The rivers, streams, and lakes of central Pennsylvania were the place where I personally learned to fish for trout. I know apply the tips and techniques that my mentor taught me in Pennsylvania all over the country.

The most effective technique for trout fishing in Pennsylvania is the use of a rig called a set of gang hooks. A set of gang hooks is simply two small hooks tied in tandem. This enables the angler to present live bait in a completely natural manner, especially live worms. And in the case of Pennsylvania trout fishing, these hooks work great. These hooks also work great for fishing in lakes in Pennsylvania. They get used exactly as you would normally fish a single hook, but with gang hooks there are 2 hooks. That means you can present twice as much Powerbait, cheese, corn, or whatever your favorite trout bait is.

While using gang hooks and a bait bag to carry his worms, my mentor used to catch 4-5 pound trout out of central Pennsylvania waters. He didn't catch trout this size every week, but he caught them this size every year, and smaller trout whenever he wanted. A trout in the 4-5 pound range is a flat out trophy no matter where you fish. , but the point is that My mentor used to catch trout in this size range while fishing in Pennsylvania.

The bottom line is that Pennsylvania trout fishing is as good as anywhere in the country as far a numbers of fish go. The waters out west have PA beat as far as native fish go, but that's simply because the waters out west gets much less fishing pressure. Pennsylvania trout fishing is as good as it gets and the techniques mentioned in this article will help anyone catch more trout while fishing in the state of Pennsylvania.
