Curious on your thoughts about the slot limit proposed for the trophy section of Penns creek. Here is the link if you didn't know about it.

There was considerable discussion of this topic earlier this year.

Well then troutbert I guess there is not need to talk about it. Never saw that topic on here but as it gets closer and to pass the time at work would love some entertainment for the day hearing thoughts on it. Some guy also told me on the stream saturday morning that he saw the Ingleby monster that is also very entertaining.

There is a tale of lore that a "shedevil" appears in the inglby area of Penns Creek. I have no experience with it except that Merle (an old member from the board who lives in Indiana) asked about it when at the Jam one year....of course he called the area Ingleberry, so.....

Then there is this....

Penns should be all catch and release on the entire stream

Ingleby Moster is a tale long told around here as well as the Coburn switchman. Tim not many at all do I think get takin out. Im for c@r I never keep a trout but I understand that it doesn't hurt to harvest some.

There seems to be wide spread support for the proposal, I think there are other candidates for slot limits, where they would work, but I'm in favor of baby steps. This happens to be a big one for PFBC.

I would have no comment. So much of that water fishes so well, that I cannot imagine any such regulations having a significant impact. I'm neither for nor against it. I think they ought to do the regs in accordance with landowners' wishes.

Jack it would be c@r fly fishing only if not for the land owners. I don't mind the all tackle 14+ regs at all see kids fishing spin gear and guys I think it's great that anyone wants to fish. Im interested of how this guy across the walk bridge in Coburn has a posted sign in the path going down but on the way back his signs are just on the sides not sure if he doesn't mind if you go thru on the way back or what. I never see him or he's way far away everytime Im thru the path.

I think the slot limit will be OK, but that it won't make much difference because the major gains have already been made. I remember when that section was stocked and under general regs. The change to not stocking and protective harvest regs has made a big difference. But once the major gains have been made, tweaking will only produce minor gains because the population has already improved up to near its full potential.

Changing the management from Spring Mills to Ingleby (currently stocked and under general harvest regs) has a lot more potential to improve trout populations than tweaking the existing special regs from Ingleby down to the C&R area.

Changing the management on Kish Creek, and Bald Eagle Cr from Spring Creek to the lake (both stocked and under general harvest regs) also has a lot more potential to improve trout populations than tweaking existing special regs on Penns.

Those stream sections are currently far below their potential, just as that section of Penns was before the management changes.

On wild trout streams, whether limestone or freestone, the combination of stocking and general regs suppresses the trout population below the potential of the stream.

I am in favor of slot limits and the biggest reason is that it is a "compromise". A concept I wish our people in Washington and Harrisburg could begin to understand. I know quite a few landowners and totally understand their views but at the same time as a person who doesn't take trout, I'd like C&R regs. This way we each get a little and we each give a little. And in my opinion, that's a good thing.

+1 on changing the regs on Kish Creek and the Lower Bald Eagle. The LBE in particular.
