Looking for Raystown Fishing Hot Spots?

Published April 15, 2014

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, May 4th and Saturday, May 10th from 8 a.m. to noon at Raystown Lake’s Weaver Falls Boat Launch (located off Weaver Falls Rd., approximately 10 minutes from the town of Saxton, PA).  You can help make a difference!  

This is the 24th 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 Melissa Bean at 814-658-6812 or Melissa.J.Bean@usace.army.mil.
