Mentored Youth Fishing Day Program; Trout

[50 Pa.B. 1916]
[Saturday, March 28, 2020]

 Acting under the authority of 58 Pa. Code § 65.20 (relating to Mentored Youth Fishing Day Program), the Executive Director has approved April 11, 2020, as Mentored Youth Fishing Day for trout, beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 7:30 p.m., in stocked trout waters designated under 58 Pa. Code § 63.3 (relating to fishing in stocked trout waters).

 This designation cancels the March 28, 2020, Mentored Youth Fishing Day previously announced in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. This cancellation of the March 28, 2020, Mentored Youth Fishing Day decision has been prompted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and calls from the Center for Disease Control and Office of the Governor for citizens to take precautions to protect the health and safety of themselves and others. This designation under 58 Pa. Code § 65.20 will be effective upon publication of this notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

 To participate on April 11, 2020, anglers 16 years of age or older (adult anglers) must possess a valid Pennsylvania fishing license and current trout/salmon permit and be accompanied by a youth (less than 16 years of age) who has obtained a voluntary youth fishing license or a mentored youth permit from the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission). Youth anglers must obtain a 2020 voluntary youth fishing license or a mentored youth permit from the Commission and be accompanied by a licensed adult angler to participate.

 Only youth anglers with a 2020 voluntary youth fishing license or mentored youth permit may possess a total of two trout (combined species) with a minimum length of 7 inches. Adult anglers are prohibited from possessing trout. Other Commonwealth inland regulations will apply. It is unlawful to fish in waters designated as part of the Mentored Youth Fishing Day Program (Program) except in compliance with the requirements of 58 Pa. Code § 65.20 when participating in the Program.

 The waters included in the Program on April 11, 2020, are those stocked trout waters that are regulated under 58 Pa. Code § 65.12 (relating to regional opening day of trout season). A listing of stocked trout waters is published in the Commission's ''Summary of Fishing Regulations and Laws'' available from the Commission at P.O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000.
