Posted April 24, 2015 By NewsEngine

HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) has scheduled several opportunities in May and June for families to learn fishing skills and enjoy fishing.

The PFBC is holding three Family Fishing Festivals in May and three in June. These events lead up to the two statewide Fish-for-Free Days – the Sunday before Memorial Day, May 24, and Independence Day, July 4.

“Family Fishing Festivals are a convenient way to introduce friends and family to the sport of fishing at no cost,” said Carl Richardson, PFBC Education Section Manager. “These are educational events designed for families with little or no fishing experience. Participants will learn basic fishing skills and have an opportunity to practice those skills while fishing during the program.”

Enterprise, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife will host a series of public meetings in early May to discuss plans to treat several water bodies in northeast Oregon to remove unwanted fish and improve trout fisheries. The agency plans to treat eight lakes and ponds in Baker, Union, Umatilla and Wallowa counties.

At meetings in Baker City, La Grande, Enterprise and Pendleton, ODFW staff will describe plans to use rotenone, a plant-based fish toxicant, to remove unwanted fish species from Balm Creek Reservoir (Baker Co.), Kinney Lake (Wallowa Co.), Lugar and Boundary ponds (Union Co.), and Keyhole, Granite Meadows, Goldfish, and Yellowjacket ponds (Umatilla Co). The goal is to remove illegally introduced brown bullhead catfish, largemouth bass, black crappie and/or goldfish. The water bodies will be treated this fall, when water levels are at their lowest.
