Summer News--Important!

The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission is now accepting applications for its soon to be vacant Commissioners Seat for District 1, which includes Erie County and the other counties of Northwest Pennsylvania.  Commissioner Mascharka has reached his term limit with the commission and they are in need of a replacement.

Dan Pastore, Attorney and Founder of Fish USA has submitted his application for the position and solicited our chapter for a letter of support.  The Board of Directors has approved this request and you can see a copy of the letter that was sent on our chapters behalf.

If you would like to send your own letter, you may email it to Robb Miller at  Remember, you have a voice and anything we can do to make sure this area is well represented on the commission is in our best interest.

Of further note:  The chapter has made contact with the PAFBC about a potential habitat improvement project on Benson Run, Erie County.  Benson Run is a tributary of the East Branch Lebouf Creek and is recognized as a Class A Wild Brown Trout Fishery but lacks good habitat.  A tentative stream-walk is planned with PAFBC representative for September so stay tuned for more information.

Have a great Summer!
