Magazine cover

This issue's cover
May 1899 on Penns Creek was a simpler time. Young and old alike gathered there to wait for the fish train and the stocking of trout. The partial view on this issue's cover, from the original oil painting by George LaVanish, depicts that era in Commission history. It's the 1999 Trout/Salmon Permit. Fine art limited-edition prints of the Trout Stamp are available from the Commission's publisher, Wilderness Editions, RR 1, Box 73, Warriors Mark, PA; phone: 814-632-7645.

The complete Trout Stamp can be viewed by clicking on the painting below.
