Temporary Changes to Fishing Regulations; Dutch Fork Lake, Washington County

[34 Pa.B. 5662]

   The Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission), acting under the authority of 58 Pa. Code § 65.25 (relating to temporary changes to fishing regulations), has taken immediate action to modify temporarily fishing regulations at Dutch Fork Lake, Washington County, in anticipation of a draw down of the lake. The Executive Director is lifting all seasons, sizes and creel limits for all species, effective immediately and until fish salvage operations are complete. The Executive Director has found that this action is necessary and appropriate for the management of fish and to conserve and preserve fishing opportunities.

   The Executive Director has caused these temporary modifications to fishing regulations to be posted in the vicinity of the lake, and the modified regulations are fully effective and enforceable. These temporary modifications will be in effect until further notice but in no event will they remain in place after January 1, 2005.

   The Executive Director, acting under the authority of 58 Pa. Code § 103.3(d) (relating to restriction for special areas), also has taken immediate action to close Dutch Fork Lake to boating. This restriction is effective immediately and will remain in effect until further notice. The Executive Director has taken this action because he has determined that a hazard will exist during the draw down period that may threaten the safety of persons, property or both. Restrictions under this section are fully effective and enforceable in accordance with the law.
