Trout stocking underway in area creeks

ALBANY TWP., Pa. -

Some folks aren't letting the potential snow storm keep them from thinking about spring.  Volunteers and state officials  spent part of the afternoon stocking trout in the Ontelaunee Creek.

In the coming weeks, 3.2 million trout will be put in more than 700 streams.

The majority of fish are stocked this way by a great group of volunteers, basically that come out a lot of anglers that like to fish, obviously," said Lee Cryer of the PA Fish and Boat Commission.

Trout season in Berks County opens on March 30th.
