[39 Pa.B. 5213]
[Saturday, August 29, 2009]
The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) has approved guidelines with regard to encouraging public participation on possible changes to the designation of streams, 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, 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 October 5 and 6, 2009, the Commission will consider redesignating the following stream section as a water subject to special fishing regulations under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65, effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin:
58 Pa. Code § 65.6. Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only (DHALO) Areas.
The Commission will consider removing the following stream section currently regulated and managed as DHALO area:
County Water on
Description Columbia Fishing Creek From the upstream Richard Kriebel property line downstream to a point located 180 yards upstream from the Benton Borough line, a distance of 0.7 mile

Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000, within 30 days after publication of this notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.
