FISHING

Rose Valley Lake is managed under Big Bass Program special regulations. All other species are managed under Commonwealth Inland Waters regulations.

Fish habitat structures have been placed in the lake over the years as part of the Commission's Cooperative Fish Habitat Improvement Program.

The Commission stocks the lake with muskellunge and walleye fingerling. Rose Valley has yielded a number of good-sized musky in recent years.

BOATING

Boating at Rose Valley Lake is limited to boats powered by electric motors and un-powered boats. Three surfaced launch ramps are available along with associated parking facilities.

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).
