"My concern with that section going C&R is loss of access. That section is mostly private and I believe stocking is the only reason the land owners keep it open."

The land owners along that section drafted and circulated the petition. They want it to be C & R.

mtnbum, can you tell us more information about all this?

Are those petitioning also asking for stocking to be ended?

Has a Class A population been found in PFBC surveys? Or close?

I also think a lot of access will be lost. Some areas are only open because they are stocked. Landowners in favor of current policy, not C&R or a slot limit may post or close roads.
Best option may be slot limit to allow all types of fishing to include all landowner's preferences.
Not my first choice, but for maintaining access may be best option here.

Access will for sure be lost if they stop stocking that section I know several cabin owners who stated that to me.

I would tread very lightly on any reg change, don't see how the positives outweigh the extremely negative possibilities.

It was stated early in the thread that the proposal to change the management came from landowners along that stretch.

Now people are saying that if the management is changed landowners along their will post their land.

So it sounds like the landowners have mixed opinions about what they want. Which is not surprising. Hopefully they will come up with a good solution that keeps people happy, and that is good for the wild trout population/fishing quality.

Meeting Summary

2018 -- no changes

2019

Lower boundary of section 5 will be moved up to a midstream island near end of Jolly's Grove Lane; from this island down, stocking and normal harvest will continue (there are a lot of cabins and homes on this lane)

no stocking in the "new/rezoned" section 5

83% of landowners in the new section 5 support C&R ALO, 11% didn't respond, 5% for slot limit (PFBC sent surveys by mail to landowners)

About 4 miles of additional (previously not stocked water starting at the Glenn Iron Bridge, rt 235, going down stream about 4 miles) water will be stocked in 2019 with the 2,200 fish that would have gone into section 5

All of the above is set in stone. Each person in attendance (about 150 people) was able to vote for one the following options and to write comments

1. Catch and Release Artificial Lures only

2. Slot Limit (same as section 3), 2 fish per day in season 7-12 inches, any tackle and bait

3. Current Regulations (still no stocking), 5 fish per day in open trout season, any tackle and bait

The Land owners who didn't want it are a majority local and the ones who wanted it changed are a majority not local land owners.

Thanks for the update. All good.

The landowner's desires were (and should be) heavily weighed in for decisions about reg changes. It's great they were on board with extension of no-stocking section and CRALO regs. Also no stocking mileage was lost, just extended further downstream. Everyone wins!

Good compromise on all fronts it seems. Thanks for the report.

It's a great compromise to people who don't know the water or area. About 65-70% of the land below the 235 bridge is posted right now in that 4 mile area.
