Pre-Season Trout Stocking

Don't miss this opportunity to visit the shop and take in all the festive splendor as the town of Volant kicks up its heels this time each year. We're only five miles from the Prime Outlet Mall in Grove City, PA.

Come early, bring your camera, bring the family, and make a day of it. The town will have activities happening throughout the entire day including the Annual Volunteer Firefighter's Sausage and Pancake Breakfast. The ALL YOU CAN EAT meal is served ALL DAY long at fire hall. The local Amish community will be selling hand-made crafts, baked goods, kettle cooked donuts, and kettle pop corn. The Volant merchants will have the red carpet layed out!!!

Purchase your pre-season fishing supplies and enter our raffle for a fly fishing rod (see details at the bottom of this page).

Come and watch as the PA Fish Commission stock the waters of Neshannock Creek at approximately 12:00 noon. The Neshannock Creek Fly Shop will also be stocking the "Lunker" Trout the following Saturday (March 9).

The "Lunker" Trout will consist of large trout anywhere from 16 inches to 5 pounds.


This is always an event that kids are excited to see, so make sure to bring them along. Kids are not only encouraged to watch, but are more than welcome to participate in the actual stocking. Fly Fishing is a great sport for youngsters. Each June, the shop hosts the Young Anglers Fly Fishing School. This is a terrific way to introduce youngsters to the fabulous sport of fly fishing. It's also a great opportunity for the young novice to improve their skills.
