Tioga Lake Fish Habitat Project Completed

On August 2nd, 2022 members of Tioga County Bass Anglers, PA Fish and Boat Commission staff, and US Army Corps of Engineers staff completed a fish habitat improvement project at Tioga Lake in Tioga County, PA.  36 Short Vertical Plank Structures and 30 Porcupine Cribs were built using rough cut hemlock and cinder block.

These structures were built on the dam, loaded onto the PFBC specialized boats, and placed in 2 strategic locations by PFBC staff according to their 5-year habitat management plan. (Site 1 and Site 5 on attached map).

These structures will benefit the fishery and the fishing for many years to come.
