WATER DESIGNATION CHANGES APPROVED AT FALL MEETING
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission approved a variety of special fishing regulation designations at its fall quarterly meeting, September 25-26 in Harrisburg. The Commission designated 14 waters into a newly-created “Brood Stock Lakes” program. Harvest of muskellunge, northern pike and pickerel will be restricted from April 1 through May 31 on lakes that serve as a source for brood fish used in the Commission’s hatchery propagation programs. Lakes placed in this program, effective in 2007, are Canadohta Lake, Conneaut Lake, Sugar Lake, Tamarack Lake and Woodcock Lake (Crawford County); Howard Eaton Reservoir, Edinboro Lake and Union City Reservoir (Erie County); Belmont Lake, Duck Harbor Pond, Lake Wallenpaupack, Lower Woods Pond, Miller Pond and Prompton Dam (Wayne County).

Also at the meeting, the Commission placed seven waters into a new Catch and Release Lakes program, including Pine Township Park Pond, Allegheny County; Raccoon Creek State Park Upper Pond, Beaver County; Bear Gap Reservoir and McWilliams Reservoir, Columbia and Northumberland Counties; Klines Reservoir, Columbia County; Owl Creek Reservoir, Schuylkill County; and Lower Burrell Pond Park, Westmoreland County. Waters in this program will be regulated as catch and release for all species on a year-round basis.

The Commission also designated Mahoning Creek and Lizard Creek in Carbon County for inclusion with waters where trout season will open approximately two weeks earlier than the remainder of the state.

In other action, the Commission:

Established January 22-23, April 16-17, July 16-17, and October 1-2 as meeting dates for 2007.
Established the fees for seasonal slips at the Commission’s Walnut Creek Marina, Erie County, as $725 annually.
Agreed to transfer 0.1 acre of property at the Oswayo State Fish Hatchery, Potter County, to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for construction of a bridge over Brizzee Hollow Run.
Accepted donation of a 1.5-acre parcel of land in Franklin County from the Falling Springs Greenway Inc.
