PFBC SEEKS PUBLIC COMMENT ON NEW STRATEGIC PLAN FOR TROUT FISHERIES MANAGEMENT
HARRISBURG, Pa. (May 26) — The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is seeking public comment on a new Strategic Plan for Management of Trout Fisheries in Pennsylvania.
This updated plan for 2020-2024 was developed based on input provided by a work group of partners including Commission staff, anglers affiliated with several sportsmen’s organizations, and independent trout anglers.
The goal of this strategic plan is to ensure that adequate protection is afforded to Pennsylvania’s wild trout resources, and that fisheries provided through the management of wild trout and stocking of adult and fingerling trout produce high quality angling opportunities in Pennsylvania.
The plan is available online for public review and a 30-day public comment period will remain open from May 26 through June 24, 2020. Comments can be submitted through the comment portal on the PFBC website (www.fishandboat.com) or mailed to PFBC, Attention: David Nihart 595 East Rolling Ridge Drive, Bellefonte, PA 16823.
The plan will be finalized during summer 2020 following consideration of public comments.
