Default Cast net proposal for lake Arthur Pa.

Lake Arthur

Anglers looking to catch alewife and gizzard shad to use as bait for striped bass at Lake Arthur in Butler County may soon have a new tool at their disposal.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has given preliminary approval to a proposal that would allow individuals -- with a proper permit -- to use cast nets or throw nets as big as 20 feet in diameter to catch bait fish. The nets must have a mesh size of at least three-eighths of an inch.
The only other lake in the state where such cast nets are legal is Raystown Lake in Huntingdon County. Commission biologists have recommended that anglers be allowed to use them at Lake Arthur, too, though, "given the presence of surface schooling alewife for much of the year and the desire to enhance striped bass angling there."
The proposal is open for public comment. Commissioners could give it final approval as soon as their April meeting.
