The patches are the first in the Pennsylvania Waters Series. The series will feature the rivers, streams and lakes of Pennsylvania. The companion patch will highlight a fish species found in those waters.

The inaugural series features Spring Creek Canyon in the north-central region of the state outside State College. On Sept. 30, the multi-partnered Spring Creek Canyon Cooperative Management Coalition unveiled signs and an informational kiosk to greet visitors to more than 1,800 acres which were opened for public use. A 4.4-mile main trail offers recreational opportunities such as hiking and biking. The canyon land is jointly managed by the PFBC, Pennsylvania Game Commission, the state Department of Corrections, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and The Pennsylvania State University and Benner Township.

The mission of the Fish and Boat Commission is to protect, conserve, and enhance the Commonwealth’s aquatic resources and provide fishing and boating opportunities. For more information about fishing and boating in Pennsylvania, please visit our website at
