HARRISBURG, Pa. (April 3) – Saturday marks the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) second Mentored Youth Trout Day for 2018, an opportunity for kids to practice their fishing skills one week before the statewide opening day of trout season kicks off in 49 counties on April 14.

Now in its fifth year, the popular program provides adult mentors with an opportunity to take kids fishing before the traditional rush of the regional and statewide opening days of trout season. Participants can fish from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“Our goal is to get more kids involved in fishing and to keep them engaged,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway.
