Lackawanna Lake
Lackawanna County
June 12, 2003
Sampling Gear: Electrofishing


Just two days before the opening of the bass season Area 4 biologists conducted an electrofishing survey at Lackawanna Lake, Lackawanna County. This state park lake has always been an excellent bass lake and results of the June 12th survey did not disappoint the survey team. The effort was hampered somewhat by several showers and the threat of a thunderstorm, however 40 minutes of electrofishing were enough to collect a sample of 120 largemouth that ranged from 5 to 22 inches. Fisheries Biologist Aide Gerald Vitale, Jr. was very impressed with the numbers of large fish and decided that Lackawanna Lake is the place to be for the opening of the 2003 bass season.
