|Sweet Valley, PA – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission announced today that the Wallenpaupack Lake Access (Mangan Cove) on Lake Wallenpaupack located in Paupack Township, Wayne County will temporarily close on September 21, 2010. It is expected that the area will remain closed until October 28, 2010.
