§ 65.25. Temporary changes to fishing regulations.

 (a)  Notwithstanding other provisions of this chapter requiring the advance approval of the Commission for designation or withdrawal of designation of waters as specially regulated areas, the Executive Director is hereby authorized to take immediate action to temporarily modify fishing regulations when he finds that modifications are necessary and appropriate for the protection, preservation and management of fish or fish habitat; to conserve and preserve fishing opportunities; or to provide for health and safety of persons who fish the waters. The Executive Director will cause temporary modifications to be posted in the vicinity of the regulated waters; and, when so posted, the modified regulations shall be effective. As soon as practicable after taking immediate action to temporarily modify fishing regulations, the Executive Director will cause a notice of this action to be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

 (b)  When the Executive Director takes immediate action to temporarily modify fishing regulations, he will notify the members of the Commission of the action and cause the matter to be placed on the agenda of the next regular or special meeting of the Commission. Temporary modifications effected under this authority will expire on January 1 of the following year or 6 months after they are effected, whichever comes later unless the Commission shall by then, by appropriate action, have approved the designation or redesignation of waters or shall have approved the revision to the regulation in question.
