Meeting Scheduled at Cabela’s to Update Anglers on Musky Management Plan

October 8, 2014

HARRISBURG, Pa. (Oct. 8) - The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) will host an afternoon meeting on Saturday, Oct. 18, at the Cabela’s store in Hamburg to update anglers on the progress made to date on the muskellunge management plan and to receive additional angler feedback on musky fishing and management in Pennsylvania.
The meeting will be held on October 18 at 1 p.m. at the Cabela’s store in Hamburg, located north and east of Harrisburg at 100 Cabela Drive, Hamburg, PA 19526.

“The meeting is designed to improve the Commission’s commitment toward increased communication with our angling groups and improved communication exchange,” said Dave Miko, Chief of the PFBC Division of Fisheries Management. “It will focus on a wide range of topics, including the progress that has been made on the numerous aspects of the statewide musky management plan released in October 2012, presentations on hatchery culture of musky, current results from PFBC tagging studies, and projects performed by musky clubs.”

The meeting also will include time for structured discussion and questions and answers that anglers have regarding musky management in Pennsylvania.

“We’re hopeful that we can reach a diverse audience of musky anglers from around different parts of Pennsylvania and with different interests in musky fishing, whether you enjoy fishing large lakes, rivers or smaller waters,” Miko added. “So mark your calendars for October 18 and join us at Cabela’s in Hamburg.”

A tentative agenda for the meeting is available on the PFBC website.

To ensure there is enough seating available, the PFBC is requesting that anglers RSVP either by registering online http://tinyurl.com/on6gesb or by calling or emailing Mackenzie Ridgway.

Really looks like an interesting agenda. Unfortunately, I'm already committed to go to a wedding in Jersey, so I won't able to attend.
I would really be interested in seeing what happens.

Any possibility of recording and maybe showing highlights at our next monthly meeting...???

Sometimes you've got to "jiggle' it, and sometimes you've got to give it one big

The Fish commision put on very informative meeting. Lots of great info , the meeting was 4.5 hrs long and well worth it . The western Pa chapters were there also.
Ive got some new waters to fish now .

Kind of dissapointing MI 50 showing though .

Thanks for posting. I was out of town and unable to make it. Hopefully our lack of representation does not hurt our relationship with the commission and the efforts we are making.
