The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Raystown Lake announces the opening of recreation areas to Canada goose hunting, starting Monday, Dec. 14, 2020, to Jan. 16, 2021.

The areas open for Canada goose hunting are as follows:

  • Seven Points Beach and Boat Launch Areas
  • Aitch Recreation Area
  • Tatman Run Beach
  • Weaver Falls Recreation Area

All aforementioned areas will also reopen from Jan. 31 – Feb. 22, 2020 for the purpose of hunting Canada geese.

Other recreational activities are still allowed in these areas during this time. USACE will post signs to establish designated hunting and restricted zones within the areas mentioned above. Hunters participating in Canada goose hunting activities at Raystown Lake must strictly adhere to the established hunting and restricted zones and the Pennsylvania Game Commission regulations, applicable U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regulations, and any other special regulations posted by USACE.

There is no off-season maintenance on these roadways; vehicle operators will be traveling at their own risk. USACE may close or choose not to open these areas based on several factors, including inclement weather, road conditions, or other special activities.
