Consideration of Changes to Special Regulation Designations

[32 Pa.B. 3446]

   The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) has approved guidelines with regard to encouraging public participation on possible changes to the designation of stream sections or lakes for special regulation programs. Under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65 (relating to special fishing regulations), the Commission designates certain streams, stream sections and lakes as being subject to special fishing regulations. These designations are effective after Commission approval when they are posted at the site and a notice is published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Under the Commission's guidelines, a notice concerning the proposed designation or redesignation of a stream section or lake under special regulations ordinarily will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin before the matter is reviewed by the Commissioners.

   At the next Commission meeting on July 26 and 27, 2002, the Commission will consider designating the following stream sections as waters subject to special fishing regulations under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65, effective January 1, 2003.

58 Pa. Code § 65.2.  Delayed Harvest Fly-fishing Only (DHFFO) Areas

   The Commission will consider revising the limits of the DHFFO Area on Octoraro Creek, West Branch, Lancaster County, by extending the upstream limit of the existing area approximately 190 yards. If approved, the revised section will be as follows: From a point 30 yards downstream of the SR 0472 Bridge downstream 2.1 miles to near the confluence with the second unnamed tributary below SR 2010, a distance of 2.1 miles.

58 Pa. Code § 65.6.  Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only (DHALO) Areas

   The Commission will consider adding the following stream section to the list of DHALO Areas:

Water on
County which located Description
Adams Bermudian Creek From the SR 1009 (Wierman Mill) Bridge downstream to T-619 Greenbrier Lane, a distance of 1.0 mile.

   At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning the previous designations. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designations are invited to submit comments to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000, by no later than 4 p.m. on July 25, 2002. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.
