|As you noted, there are some restrictions on they type of tackle
you can use in stream sections managed under Delayed Harvest Fly Fishing Only (DHFFO)
regulations, as well in other streams where fly-fishing only restrictions apply.
The use of
small split shot sinkers on a fly leader is legal in DHFFO and other fly-fishing only areas as
long as the hook is not modified to make snagging of fish more likely.
Regulations are listed in the PA Summary Book, specifically in the DHFFO regulations section.
