The banks of rivers and creeks were covered with fishermen in Pennsylvania early Saturday morning for the start of trout season.
Reels were cast at 8 a.m. to signify the start of the season.
Despite less than ideal conditions for fishing, several people set up around Lake Julia in Hermitage for the day. It is the first time that trout fishing was available at the lake.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission have been stocking trout in Pennsylvania waterways throughout the past month, including placing 800 trout into Lake Julia.
“I got off of work at 1:30 this morning and I bought a new pole. My dad bought me the pole and I put the line on it and got everything ready and got probably and hour and half worth of sleep and got out here,” said Madelyn Kelly from Greenville.
Trout season in Pennsylvania continues through Labor Day.
