FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Proposed Special Regulation Designations
[45 Pa.B. 7072]
[Saturday, December 12, 2015]
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 or redesignates certain streams, stream sections and lakes as being subject to special fishing regulations. These designations and redesignations 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.
At the next Commission meeting on January 20 and 21, 2016, the Commission will consider taking the following actions with respect to waters subject to special fishing regulations under 58 Pa. Code Chapter 65, effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin:
58 Pa. Code § 65.15. Catch and release all-tackle.
The Commission will consider designating the following water as catch and release all-tackle under § 65.15:
County Water Potter/Tioga Upper Kettle Creek Basin, from the headwaters of Kettle Creek downstream to the confluence with Long Run, including Long Run and all tributaries upstream to the headwaters
58 Pa. Code § 65.19. Stocked trout waters open to year-round fishing.
The Commission will consider designating the following water as a stocked trout water open to year-round fishing under § 65.19:
County Water Wyoming Lake Winola
At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning the previous designations. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designations are invited to submit comments in writing to the 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.
