Temporary Changes to Fishing Regulations; Donegal Lake, Westmoreland County; Kyle Lake, Jefferson County; and Somerset Lake, Somerset County

[46 Pa.B. 5861]
[Saturday, September 10, 2016]

 The Executive Director of the Fish and Boat Commission (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 Donegal Lake, Westmoreland County; Kyle Lake, Jefferson County; and Somerset Lake, Somerset County in anticipation of a complete drawdown of the lakes. The Executive Director is lifting all seasons, sizes and creel limits for all species, effective August 26, 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 these lakes.

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