Pennsylvania’s Trout season opens early this year, this coming Penn State researchers, who are evaluating the colors, pattern variations and genetics of wild brook and brown trout across Pennsylvania, are asking anglers to help with their study. They want anglers to submit photos of wild brook and brown trout they catch and include a special gray card in the frame. To participate, anglers can request gray cards by going to https://bit.ly/3ij38nW, and the cards will be mailed to them for inclusion in trout photos .Anglers simply take a picture of a trout with the gray card in view and submit it via Survey123. Instructions on how to download that app will be included when they receive the gray cards.The Survey 123 app will ask anglers questions about their catches researchers promise that fishing locations will remain confidential and never be published as exact points. This research is open to all anglers who complete survey forms and are at least 18 years of age.
Researchers also will be able to look at the approximate size, and therefore age, of the fish in the pictures with the gray cards included and estimate the timing of breeding condition as pictures are
The researchers want wild trout quickly photographed and released,Anglers participating in the study may want to take a step away from the stream bank to snap their photos, as a number of anglers have reported they dropped their phones in the stream.
