Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking; Creel Limit for Trout

[28 Pa.B. 5816]

   The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) is publishing this advance notice of proposed rulemaking to invite interested persons to provide comments on a proposal to reduce the Statewide daily creel limit of trout from eight to five during the regular season. This proposal would not apply to the Conowingo Reservoir, the Delaware River or Lake Erie and its tributaries.

   The proposal to reduce the creel limit by three per day is based on social and policy perceptions and issues. From a resource-based fisheries management perspective, there will be no distinct impacts from reducing the creel limit from eight to five. This change, however, may affect public perceptions about the value of these fish and the appropriate number of fish to be taken each day.

   Interested persons are invited to submit written comments, objections or suggestions to the Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000, on or before January 19, 1999. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. Comments also may be submitted electronically at '''' A subject heading of the proposal and a return name and address must be included in each transmission. If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the comments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt.
