Mentored Youth Day Prepares Young People For Trout Season

by Sara Vogt - March 29, 2022

Home Page cameras caught Colegan Stiner in action on Mentored Youth Trout Day on Saturday, March 27th doing what he loves to do! FISH!

His parents, Jan and Diante Stiner, tell us that he started fishing in their backyard when he was a toddler. He would have fun for hours casting with his Snoopy pole with no hook (of course) but a ball tied to the end of the line so the cats would chase it!

Colegan’s first Mentored Youth Trout Day was when he was just three years old, and in the thirteen years following, he has not missed one year!

Colegan is passionate about fishing! He fished 355 days last year, and the PA trout mentored youth’s first day is so important to him because it gives him a chance to get out there and catch and release all the trout that he can catch. This day was also a time for him to help other kids fish nearby and have fun!

In 2019, he had the state record for the most significant golden rainbow trout caught in PA. Colgan understands how to read the water, whether its depth, clarity, or temperature. He also knows what color of lures to use. Colgan enjoys the thrill of the catch during fishing. Colegan (Gump)never keeps the fish, but he always tells the trout, “thanks, and I’ll catch you another day.” He logged 1900 trout last year and over 1000 pounds of Bass.

Colegan started a fishing team through Wellsboro High School called the Wellsboro Bassmasters. They were sitting fourth in the state through many tournaments last year.

He plans to attend Mansfield University on a fishing scholarship and eventually become a Bass professional.

When Colegan’s not fishing, he’s organizing his rods, his boat, or getting ready for whatever’s biting next week.

An old-timer once told him on Pine Creek; he said son, you could catch a fish in a mud puddle.
