Here are some friendly reminders to ensure every visitor enjoys the Forest, recreates by the rules, and has an enjoyable fishing season.

Fishing Information

The USDA Forest Service would like to remind anglers that all rules, regulations, stocking schedules and fishing guidelines can be found on the PennsylvanCommission’s Boat Commissions website at www.fishandboat.com.

Camping and Fishing

Anglers, campers and visitors are reminded that, with exception to fee based campground campsites, reserving dispersed or primitive campsites along the rivers and/or waterways is strictly prohibited.

Visitors and campers must occupy their campsite the evening of establishing it and every 24-hours thereafter, unless a special use permit has been granted.

Anglers, campers and visitors are reminded that camping along the Clarion River and Millstone Roads is limited to designated sites only.

All visitors are responsible for removing all of the trash they brought with them and/or created while recreating on the Forest.

The Forest Service will be monitoring for such activities. Those found in violation of these rules can be subject to criminal charges.
