100 Days of Summer: June 5- Go Windsurfing

A few years ago, “Surf the North Shore” shirts were a popular area fad. I Always thought they were ironic. I mean, who would surf in Ohio?

Well Actually, This Guy:

Or, If Lake Erie is a challenge, try windsurfing of Barber Point at Moraine State Park– It’s so popular there, its featured on their web site.

100 Days of Summer: Day 11-Go Boating

Almost sunken boat.

Well, I’m taking the night off to re-coup a little. And I know I’m actually a day ahead: I posted once one mornaing and meant to schedule the after work post, but posted it in the evening instead. And I’ve kept caught up, even though I haven’t really gotten any ideas saved up.

So Here’s an easy one: Get the Boat Out. Go to Lake Milton, Berlin, Mosquito, Pymatuning State Park, Portage LAkes, Guilford Lake or any of the other area Lakes. Take your water skis, yourfishing poles, a picnic and the family. Have fun.

And, yes, I know the fishing page is in dire need of a makeover. it was one of the first pages I ever did and it kinda just sits there, getting no visits. I’ll start building it. I promise

Consumption Advisory Lifted For Pymatuning

Harrisburg – The departments of Environmental Protection and Health, and the Fish and Boat Commission have lifted the “Do Not Eat” consumption advisory for all species of fish taken from Pymatuning Reservoir and Tamarack Lake in Crawford County. 

Fish tissue samples tested by the Fish and Boat Commission and Cornell University determined the large fish kills in both lakes were the result of a Columnaris outbreak. Columnaris is a naturally occurring bacterium that was triggered by several stressors, including rapidly warming waters during the spawning season.

The commonwealth’s Interagency Fish Consumption Advisory Technical Workgroup verified the findings. 

DEP also tested water quality and fish tissue samples. The preliminary results show no contaminants of concern for persons who consume fish from the lakes or for downstream water supplies.

Wow, that first paragraph was fun. But just in case you got totally confused, we’ll say it again with a bit more grammar. Our R/C Land & Sea Tank drives great on all sorts of surfaces and transforms from tank to ship in mere seconds. It’s particularly fun for a day at the beach because you can drive it on the sand, over the people you’ve buried in the sand, and then into the water. You can also defend your plot of sand by shooting BB’s at people who attempt to put their towels in your zone. Once you’ve scared them all away, your tank can rest by your side and serve as a drink holder for your soda. Sweet.

Brady's Run Lake to be Drawn Down: Unlimited Fishing

Somerset, PA – Anglers visiting Brady’s Run Lake in Beaver County can harvest an unlimited number of fish beginning May 15, the date the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) will lift all seasons, sizes and creel limits in preparation of a summer drawdown of the lake.

“Removing all harvest restrictions provides additional recreational opportunities for anglers and can help reduce the number of fish that could potentially be stranded when the water level drops,” said Denny Tubbs, Outreach and Education Coordinator for the PFBC Southwest Region. “Once the draining of the lake begins, all public access to the lake will be prohibited.”

The lake will be closed beginning on June 14 and will be drawn down to remove sediment that has accumulated behind the dam over the past 24 years. The drawdown is expected to occur during the last weeks in June. The lake is a 28-acre reservoir owned by Beaver County and is the central attraction in Brady’s Run County Park, located southwest of Beaver Falls in Chippewa Township. The lake was similarly rehabilitated in 1985 – 1986.

The PFBC will attempt to salvage as many game fish as possible from the lake and relocate them to other waters in the area. The dates of the fish salvage will be announced once set. When the lake returns to full pool, it will be restocked with warm-water fish, returned to the list of Approved Trout Waters, and stocked with adult trout.

These temporary modifications will be in effect until further notice but in no event will it remain in place after January 1, 2011. All other rules and regulations remain in effect.

The mission of the Fish and Boat Commission is to protect, conserve, and enhance the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources and provide fishing and boating opportunities. For more information about fishing and boating in Pennsylvania, please visit our website at www.fishandboat.com.
