2024 Lehigh River Trout Tournament

Lehigh River Trout Tournament
May 4th to June 8th 2024

The Lehigh River Trout Tournament will take place again this year, bigger and better than ever. New for 2024 will be more trout stocked and more tags placed in more areas of the river. Because of the huge success last year, (we had over 300 participants) the LRSA has increased the amount of money for stocking to $8000 and expanded the fishing opportunities to more locations. Stockings will include Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, Palmerton, Bowmanstown, Walnutport and Northampton. We felt that this will enable more participants to enjoy the Tournament without over pressuring a smaller area of the river. Also new this year is the Tournament dates have been moved up to May 4 to June 8, 2024. This was done to have the Tournament take place when the water temperatures were ideal for fishing and catch and release.
