Come and enjoy fishing in our mountain pond. Laurel Hill Trout Pond offers both novice and experienced fishermen a unique opportunity where they may improve their skills and have fun doing so. Our pond is fed by cold mountain water and is situated in the beautiful Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania. We are located near several mountain resorts and state parks. The pond is stocked with trout varying in size from 10-22". These trout provide a delicious and healthy meal, along with an enjoyable fishing experience. Fishermen are also welcome to take a walk-through tour of our Somerset Trout Hatchery while they are here. No state license is required to fish in our pond, and we offer a "guaranteed catch". Rental rods and bait are available for fishermen if needed or feel welcome to bring your own. So come and have a wonderful time and take home a delicious meal of trout.
Upon entering Laurel Hill Trout Pond, please register at our check-in station. After registering, you may begin fishing. Please use one of our buckets to keep your fish in while here. All fish caught must be kept, catch and release fishing is not permitted. Once you are done fishing, go back to the check-in station where you may either have your fish bagged, cleaned, or filleted. Once your fish are done, please pay at the check-in window. State law requires that you keep the receipt you are given with your fish until they are consumed.
