Sampling Gear: Night Electrofishing
Summary: Lower Burrell Park Pond (also known as Holtzhauer Lake) is a 4-acre impoundment that is located in northwestern Westmoreland County and owned by the city of Lower Burrell. Informal catch-and-release regulations have been in effect at the impoundment since September 2000. Lower Burrell Park Pond contained a good density of largemouth bass with 28% of the bass greater than 12 inches. Bluegills were very abundant with the majority of the fish between 5 and 8 inches long. Black crappies and white crappies were collected in low numbers but quality-sized fish were present. Lower Burrell Park Pond would be a good place to fish for largemouth bass and bluegills.
