it's a wonder anybody was out, The price of the license drives fishermen away, hoe do they expect the normal family member handle that price, Other then the enjoyment, you never get your money's wort in fish

Another pathetic attempt at "stocking" by the state. Stocking is not just dumping all the trout under the bridges or in holes closest to the roads. If it werent for sportsmens groups like Mummasburg, it would hardly be worth going out. If you catch a big one, chances are that they stocked it, and their members float stocked all creeks in Adams County. Remember to thank them or make a donation so that they can continue to do this!!

Ahhh poor fishermen. Slow day at catching fish in a barrel. Shoulder to shoulder trying to catch a pet fish sounds like fun to me. lol

$35 for license and trout stamp. Rods, line and lures/bait for a family of 3, $100. Fighting the weather, crowds and only catching finger lengths with PCB's, which is poison.... not worth it.

I used to go the first day,,me & freinds went to the yellow breeches, it got so bad that people would camp out over night, the fire co. would run a concession truck up & down the road selling hot dogs,, elbow to elbow fisherman. I never really did all that well up there anyways, & most of my buddies have died that went along, So i don't go the first day anymore,,I told my wife i was gonna go to Walmart & get my license today, But the more i thought about it ,with the price that high,, I just said the hell with Pa. & their high prices & no fish,, A guy can't even stop at lunch and have a sandwich & a beer along side the creek without getting in trouble these days. I have a pond on my property that I stocked ( no trout but nice channel cats)& if i want to catch a fish & drink a beer,thats where I'll be!

Another season opener - elbow to elbow
Trout piled up under the bridges - creek fishing has become - wait in line for the guy in front of you to catch his limit, and then take your turn. If stocking would be done the right way - we could fish for months and have some great fishing.

I fish for and catch trout year-round in south-central PA. Sure, opening day is a zoo. It was in the 70s too as far as I can remember. Outside of very well-known special regs waters, I hardly ever see another fisherman more than 6 weeks after the opener, but in the right streams, stockies are still there. For the few weeks the crowds are out, think outside the "approved trout streams" box for a better experience. Be ready to explore/hike a bit, and practice catch-and-release most of the time. Things aren't so bad.
