Temporary Changes to Fishing Regulations; Minsi Lake, Northampton County

[46 Pa.B. 5983]
[Saturday, September 17, 2016]

 The Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission, acting under the authority of 58 Pa. Code § 65.25 (relating to temporary changes to fishing regulations), has taken immediate action to modify temporarily fishing regulations at Minsi Lake, Northampton County in anticipation of a drawdown of the lake. The Executive Director is lifting all seasons, sizes and creel limits for all species, except trout, effective September 3, 2016. The Executive Director has found that this action is necessary and appropriate for the management of fish and to conserve and preserve fishing opportunities at this lake.

 The Executive Director will cause these temporary modifications to fishing regulations to be posted in the vicinity of the lake, and the modified regulations will be fully effective and enforceable when so posted. These temporary modifications will remain in effect until the lake is closed to public use.
