Brian Snyder, right, and his son, Zachary, of Pottsville, display their five-fish limits caught opening day of the 2019 Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s Southeast Region trout season at Whippoorwill Dam at South End Field and Stream, Frackville.

Oops, of course, I meant the opening day of trout season. For generations of Pennsylvania anglers, however, “fishing season” is the one-size, fits-all term for the regular trout season.
