FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Temporary Changes to Fishing Regulations; Miscellaneous Special Regulations Regarding Lake Erie Tributaries
[39 Pa.B. 6524]
[Saturday, November 7, 2009]
An error occurred in the notice which appeared at 39 Pa.B. 6297 (October 24, 2009). The first paragraph should have read as follows:
On October 26, 2009, Act 40 of 2009 will go into effect. This act amends 30 Pa.C.S. § 2907.2 (relating to Lake Erie fishing permits), to provide that a special Lake Erie permit is required to fish in Lake Erie, Presque Isle Bay and their tributaries, including waters that flow into those tributaries, instead of ''the Pennsylvania waters of Lake Erie, Presque Isle Bay and their tributaries'' only. This amendment requires anglers, effective October 26, to procure a Lake Erie fishing permit to fish in Conneaut Creek, Turkey Creek and their tributaries when previously one was not required because although these streams begin in this Commonwealth, they enter Lake Erie in Ohio. Although a Lake Erie permit will be required to fish these streams, Act 40 also provides that proceeds derived from their sale may now be used to fund projects on those waters.
The remainder of the notice was accurate as printed.
