Proposed Special Regulation Redesignations

[35 Pa.B. 4683]

   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.

   Prior to the end of the year, the Commission will consider redesignating the following river sections that are currently regulated and managed under 58 Pa. Code § 65.4a (relating to all-tackle trophy trout) and placing them under regulation and management under 58 Pa. Code § 65.15 (relating to catch and release all-tackle areas), a new regulatory program that will go into effect on January 1, 2006. If adopted, these redesignations will go into effect on January 1, 2006:

Little Juniata River From the railroad bridge at the east (downstream) border of Ironville downstream to the mouth, a distance of 13.5 miles
