FISH AND BOAT
Proposed Special Regulation Designations
[30 Pa.B. 285]
The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) has approved guidelines with regard to encouraging public participation on possible changes to the designation of 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 new guidelines, a notice concerning the proposed designation or redesignation of a 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 January 21 and 22, 2000, the Commission will consider designating the following lakes as waters subject to special fishing regulations under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65, effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin:
58 Pa. Code § 65.9. Big Bass Special Regulations
The Commission will consider designating the following lakes as regulated and managed under the Big Bass Special Regulations and adding them to the list of waters subject to these regulations (58 Pa. Code § 65.9):
County Water Cambria Hinckston Dam Cambria Wilmore Dam Somerset Quemahoning Reservoir
58 Pa. Code § 65.11. Panfish Enhancement Special Regulation.
The Commission will consider designating the following lakes for regulation and management under the Panfish Enhancement Special Regulation and adding them to the list of waters subject to this regulation (58 Pa. Code § 65.11):
County Water Applicable Species Cambria Hinckston Dam Sunfish

At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning these designations. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designations are invited to submit comments in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000 by no later than the close of business (4 p.m.) on January 20, 2000. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.
