Designations and Redesignations of Waters Subject to Special Fishing Regulations

[41 Pa.B. 4263]
[Saturday, August 6, 2011]

 The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) designated or redesignated the following streams, stream sections and lakes as waters subject to 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65 (relating to special fishing regulations), effective January 1, 2012:

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

 The Commission redefined the limits of the DHALO Area on Quittapahilla Creek, Section 04, Lebanon County, that is regulated and managed under 58 Pa. Code § 65.6. The Commission extended the limits 0.2 mile so that the redefined limits are from the Spruce Street Bridge (T-398) downstream to the Route 934 Bridge, a distance of 1.1 miles.

58 Pa. Code § 65.15. Catch and Release All-tackle Areas

 The Commission managed Spring Creek, Section 05, Centre County, as an exhibition area from the railroad trestle located 100 meters upstream of the dam in Tallyrand Park downstream to Lamb Street Bridge, a distance of approximately 550 meters. The Commission now will maintain the reach of Spring Creek flowing through Tallyrand Park as an exhibition area but will open the adjacent reach downstream of the park to public angling. The new limits of the exhibition area are from the railroad trestle located 100 meters upstream of the dam in Tallyrand Park downstream to High Street Bridge, a distance of approximately 200 meters. In addition, the Commission will manage the approximately 350- meter reach of Spring Creek that has been reopened to public angling as part of Section 06 under catch and release all-tackle regulations under 58 Pa. Code § 65.15. The description of the limits of the catch and release all-tackle area remains the same. They are from the Boalsburg Road Bridge (SR 3010) at Oak Hall upstream of Hanson Quarry (formerly HRI/Neidig Bros. Quarry) downstream to the mouth with the exception of the special regulations area at Fishermen's Paradise and the exhibition area in Bellefonte.

58 Pa. Code § 65.19. Approved Trout Waters Open to Year-Round Fishing

 The Commission designated the following waters as part of the Approved Trout Waters Open to Year-Round Fishing Program managed under 58 Pa. Code § 65.19:
