Removal of Catch and Release Designations; Spring Brook and Panther Creek, Lackawanna County

[36 Pa.B. 4276]
[Saturday, August 5, 2006]

   Since the beginning of the 1995 season, the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) has regulated and managed a 2.4-mile section of Spring Brook, Lackawanna County, extending from the outflow of Watres Reservoir downstream to Nesbitt Reservoir and a 2.5-mile section of Panther Creek, Lackawanna County, from the headwaters downstream to the mouth, as Catch and Release Areas under 58 Pa. Code § 65.5 (relating to catch and release areas). Recently, the Commission was notified that a private landowner has decided to close the land along both sections of stream to public access. The reasons given for closing the land were problems associated with littering and dumping on the property.

   Because the property is no longer open to public fishing, the Commission has removed the 2.4-mile section of Spring Brook and the 2.5-mile section of Panther Creek from its Catch and Release Program. These redesignations will go into effect upon publication of this notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
