Brady’s Run Lake

Beaver County
May 2007


Brady’s Run Lake is located within the nearly 2000 acres Brady’s Run County Park. The park offers numerous recreational facilities and can be found two miles north of Beaver, PA, on Route 51 in Beaver County. The 28-acre lake is stocked with trout both pre-season and in-season. Largemouth bass in the lake are managed under the Big Bass Program with a 15-inch size limit and a four fish per day creel limit (see page 7 in your 2007 Summary Book).

On the night of May 15, 2007 Area One Fisheries Management personnel sampled the bass population to monitor changes in the number and size of bass. Three 20 minute electrofishing runs were conducted covering most of the shoreline. A total of 74 bass were captured ranging in size from 81 mm (3.2 inches) to 493 mm (19.5 inches). Eight (11%) of the largemouth bass were over 15 inches long and 21 (28%) were over 12 inches. We also observed one large smallmouth bass that was over 18 inches long. This lake is also stocked annually with channel catfish.
