FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Proposed Nursery Water Designation; Shenango River, Crawford County
[41 Pa.B. 6751]
[Saturday, December 10, 2011]
Under 58 Pa. Code § 67.1 (relating to nursery waters and exhibition areas), the Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission), with the approval of the Commission, may designate waters as nursery waters or exhibition areas to which the penalties in 30 Pa.C.S. § 2106 (relating to fishing in hatchery or nursery waters) apply. The designation of waters as nursery waters or exhibition areas shall be effective upon posting of the waters after publication of a notice that the waters have been so designated in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The Commission previously designated the sanctuary and the spillway area of Pymatuning Lake, Crawford County, as nursery waters. This designation is effective year-round. To protect hatchery stock of walleye from the sanctuary, the Commission now proposes to extend the nursery waters designation to a portion of the Shenango River on a seasonal basis. At the next Commission meeting on January 30 and 31, 2012, the Commission will consider designating the Shenango River, from the Pymatuning Lake sanctuary boundary at the Route 285 Bridge, locally known as the Blair Bridge, upstream 100 yards. The Commission proposes that this designation be effective from March 1 to the first Saturday in May.
At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning the previous designation. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designation 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 com- pleting the form at www.fishandboat.com/regcomments. 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.
