"Fisherman get jump on upcoming trout season"

Smithton Sportsmen
The Smithton Sportsmen, which have been stocking the Yough longer than any club, plans to put fish into the river at 9 a.m. every Saturday from now through April 26. Fish will be stocked at 5 p.m. April 9 for the opener.

At least $1,500 worth of fish will go in every time -- more if any stockings get canceled because of high water, as has been the case twice this year.

The club will stock rainbows and browns, Celapino said. The fish will range from 9-to-18 inches, with five lunkers, averaging 26-to-28 inches, in the mix each time.

"We're going to put 25 palominos in each week, too," Celapino said.
