Shore fishing is permitted. Dutch Fork also contains a good population of warmwater and coolwater fish species. Statewide regulations for Commonwealth Inland Waters apply for all species of fish.
Boating at Dutch Fork Lake is limited to boats powered by electric motors and unpowered boats. One launch ramp is available along with three parking areas.
Un-powered boats may be moored at the lake in accordance with Commission
property regulations. To be used at the lake, boats must be registered or have a valid launch permit (permits are issued by the Commission or PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources).
