Harrisburg, PA - The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) will hold its winter quarterly meeting on January 29-30 at agency headquarters, 1601 Elmerton Avenue, in Harrisburg.

Commission committees will meet beginning at 2:15 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 29, and at 8 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 30. Formal consideration of the agenda by the full Commission will begin at approximately 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 30. All committee meetings and the review of the agenda are open to the public and attendance is encouraged. A strategic planning work session for Commissioners will be held on Thursday morning from 9 a.m. to noon.

Among the items on the agenda, the Commission will review a proposal to establish a Premium Stocked Trout Waters Program beginning in 2010. The program would allocate a portion of existing two and three-year old brood fish into select water across the state, providing anglers the opportunity to fish over a relatively high density of larger stocked trout. The Commission will also consider two property-related matters to improve public fishing access, including a lease in Cumberland County and an acquisition in Erie County. Other proposals on the agenda would open a currently closed season for striped bass on the Delaware River and add several mussel species to the endangered or threatened species lists.
