At the request of the landowners Sonny Comfort,  Jeff Pontius, Ric Starr, and others, the PA Fish
and Boat Commission has established a "SPECIAL REGULATIONS, CHILDREN ONLY" fishing area
on Little Shamokin Creek. This regulation makes the area available to fishing exclusively for
children 12 years of age and younger, and will be in effect April 7 thru May 31, 2018.  April 7 is the
mentored youth fishing day on the stream, fishing is allowed for ages 12 or younger 8:00 am TILL
7:00 pm ONLY.    There is a 2 trout maximum limit for all youth.   Per PAF&BC regulations, adults
are not allowed to fish or kill any trout in this area on this mentored youth or any other day prior
to June 1, 2018. BEGINNING IN 2018, BOTH THE YOUTH AND THE MENTOR MUST POSSESS A VALID
FISHING LICENSE OR A VOLUNTARY YOUTH FISHING LICENSE ON THE MENTORED YOUTH DAY.
IN ADDITION, THE ADULT MUST POSSESS A VALID TROUT PERMIT.
FOR A FULL EXPLANATION REFER TO PAGE 5 OF THE 2018 PA FISHING SUMMARY OR:
http://www.fishandboat.com/fish/fishingregulations/pages/mentoredyouthprogram.aspx
No fishing is allowed from April 7 at 7:00 PM until April 14 at 8:00 AM which is the opening day for
youth trout fishing on these waters.  APRIL 14 TO MAY 31 AN ADULT DOES NOT NEED A VALID
LICENSE TO ASSIST THE CHILD AS OUTLINED BELOW. THE DAILY LIMIT FOR YOUTH IN THIS
PERIOD  IS 5 TROUT.  After May 31, 2018, this area will be open to fishing for all ages.

The regulation stipulates that any adult who assists a child (12 years of age and under) by casting
or retrieving a fishing line or fishing rod is NOT required to possess a valid fishing license
provided that the child remains within arms’ reach of the assisting adult and is actively involved
in the fishing activity. An adult may assist a child by baiting hooks, removing fish from the line,
netting fish, and preparing the fishing rod for use.  Adults MAY NOT "set the hook" for a child.

The area included is THE TRANSMISSION LINE CROSSING UPSTREAM OF THE INTERSECTION OF
