New Rules Prohibit Use Or Possession Of Gas Engines On Reservoir

New Restrictions in Place on Letterkenny Reservoir in Franklin County

HARRISBURG, PA – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is reminding anglers and boaters who use Franklin County’s Letterkenny Reservoir that new rules prohibit not only the use of gas engines but also the possession of gas engines, even if they are not in use.

The reservoir is located in Lurgan and Letterkenny townships, Franklin County, and is owned by the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority and the Franklin County General Authority. The PFBC has a public use agreement with the two groups that allows anglers and boaters to use the facility. The agreement was recently renewed and contains the new restrictions.

“In the past, boaters could attach an electric motor to the boat transom and leave the gas engine turned off,” said Anthony Quarracino Jr., PFBC waterways conservation officer responsible for the county. “Under the new rules, they cannot have a gas engine on a boat at all, even if the engine is out of the water and not being used.”

WCO Quarracino said the rules also apply to the use of augers for ice fishing. “Anglers can continue to use the reservoir for ice fishing, but they must use a manual auger to drill through the ice,” he said.

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.

.... OK gas drillers, any new well must be dug by hand. No using motors or engines to drill the wells.

Only fair right?

More stupid regulation by the "state." If an engine isn't running, it doesn't matter. DUH ?!?

Hey 1:39--It's a private own Lake and these are the Owners Rules. They could tell you to just stay off. Which would you like to have?
