Voice your Opinion on Spring Closing of the River

We thought it would be good to post some information that folks can use to voice their opinion through the proper channels concerning the possibility of the Susquehanna River being closed during the Spring.  As you may know, the river was recently made catch-and-release only.  Now there is a movement to have fishing for bass on the river closed completely during the spawn in the Spring.  This is being done to help the dwindling smallmouth population.  Although we are for efforts that would help solve this problem, these actions will have no effect on the problem which is basically caused by pollution.

If you feel strongly about your rights to fish during the spring then write to Senator Brubaker who is Head of Fisheries.  You may also write to the PA Fish and Boat Commission, but we feel that because Senator Brubaker oversees the commission this is a better route.  Here are some addresses:
