Proposed Special Regulation Designations and Redesignations

[42 Pa.B. 1198]
[Saturday, March 3, 2012]

 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 April 11 and 12, 2012, the Commission will consider taking the following actions with respect to waters subject to special fishing regulations under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65, effective upon publication of a notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin:

58 Pa. Code § 65.5. Catch and release areas

 The Commission currently regulates and manages Yellow Breeches Creek, Section 03, Cumberland County, from Boiling Springs downstream to the vicinity of Allen-berry, as a catch and release area under 58 Pa. Code § 65.5. The Commission will consider extending this catch and release area upstream to include Section 01 of the unnamed tributary to Yellow Breeches Creek, locally known as ''The Run.'' The Run extends 0.17 mile from the outfall of Children's Lake downstream to the mouth (confluence with Yellow Breeches Creek).

58 Pa. Code § 65.19. Approved trout waters open to year-round fishing

 The Commission will consider removing Laurel Run, Clearfield County, from its Approved Trout Waters Open to Year-Round Fishing Program managed under 58 Pa. Code § 65.19.

 At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning the previously listed designations and redesignations. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designations and redesignations are invited to submit comments in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. 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. Comments also may be submitted electronically by completing the form at If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the comments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt. Electronic comments submitted in any other manner will not be accepted.
