RAYSTOWN LAKE, Pa. – Do you want to learn where the fishing “hot spots” are at Raystown Lake while also helping the aquatic habitat of the lake? If so, a fish structure building day is the perfect event for YOU!
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking energized volunteers to help with the construction and placement of porcupine brush cribs at Raystown Lake. Two fish structure building days will be held this year. Please join us on Sunday, April 29 and Saturday, May 5 from 8 a.m. to noon at Raystown Lake’s Nancy’s Campground (located off Rt. 994, approximately 2 miles east of Rt. 26). You can help make a difference!
This is the 22nd year volunteers have helped the Corps, and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission build and place artificial aquatic habitat structures in Raystown Lake. Vehicle access, parking and everything you need, including light refreshments, will be provided by the Corps and the Friends of Raystown Lake.
Fish structure building days are a great opportunity for sportsmen’s organizations, civic clubs or individual volunteers to demonstrate their commitment to the fisheries of Raystown Lake. For additional information about the program or directions, volunteers should contact Park Ranger Tara Whitsel at 8146586811 or Tara.J.Whitsel@usace.army.mil.
