The 5 primary trouts are the rainbow, brook, brown, cutthroat and
lake trout. Brown trout are considered the most difficult to catch
and brookies are the easiest. Pure cold water is key to survival
of the trouts and the brook trout is the most sensitive to temperature.
The others are comfortable in slightly warmer waters.
Penn Trout Fishing Lakes
You don't have to go far to find trout in Pennsylvania. Many of
the rivers and streams hold trout as do small lakes and ponds.
The major lakes offering trout fishing include Blue Marsh Lake,
Glendale Lake, Lake Erie, Lake Wallenpaupack and Raystown
Lake. Visit the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission for information
stocking in PA.
The Pennsylvania state record brook trout was caught out of Fishing
Creek and Walnut Creek gave up the Pennsylvania state record brown
trout. Lake Erie served up both the state record lake trout and
the state record palomino trout. The PA state record rainbow trout
came out of Jordan Creek.
