PENNSYLVANIA: S. Berks Co. – Tip… Wax Worms Are a Hot Bait!

The weather for the Regional Opening Day of Trout Season just couldn’t have been any better!

A sunny day (for a change) and nice temperatures brought out good crowds on streams and lakes in Berks County.  Baits of choice included worms, meal worms, corn, minnows, bait pastes, spinners, and just about anything else you could hang on a line (tip: wax worms are a hot bait!).

Many anglers limited out early, and many others just chose to catch and release.  Kids of all ages had a great time, with many families enjoying the tradition of opening day.  Quite a few trophy size fish were caught which made for some great pictures.  Trout stocking continues this week, check our website for locations and times.  Just a reminder to treat the areas you fish as if they were your own!

Have a great trout season!
