From PA Bass Tournament Restrictions update


West Virginia, New York and Maryland are open for tournaments under SPECIFIC guidelines from those states. PA Bass Federation Clubs and Districts who hold approved permits for tournaments are able to conduct those events as long as they abide by agency specific guidelines for those events.

Any club or District meetings are to be conducted under the current restrictions in place for the county they are held in at the time of the meeting. Under NO circumstances will meetings or events be held in any county with a Red Designation.

PA State Championship June 26-27 Cayuga Lake, Union Springs Launch. If you participated in either 2019 Team Regional or at least 1 District tournament, you are able to apply NOW.

Team Regional 2, July 11-12 at Keuka and Team Regional 1, July 17-18 at Cayuga Lake. Send in those applications.

The Junior Tournament on May 31st will be conducted so please get all of your youth involved. The second Junior Tournament will be July 25th at Gouldsboro. Combined points from these events will establish boat number for the PA Jr Championship August 29-30. All teams are still welcome at the championship even if they do not fish either event.

Time to fish please be safe.

From PA Bass Tournament Restrictions

As you know, the Governor of PA has extended the stay at home order until April 30th. What you may not know is that the Governor of VA has extended their order until June 10th and the Governor of MD has issued a stay at home order effective today (Monday March 30th) as of 8:00pm to remain in effect until the state of emergency is over. Notice there is no end date to his order. These are not "social distancing" orders, they are STAY AT HOME orders. I understand that these orders allow for outdoor activities and further delineate the social distancing requirement as well as no groups larger than 10. This is not to allow ANY event no matter how you try to structure it.

Therefore, NO Club that is part of The Pennsylvania Bass Federation, Inc. will conduct any tournament, event, meeting (unless via electronic means) or any other activity until further notice. If you have any events scheduled between now and May 30
th, I would advise that you make alternate plans.

Campaign to Help Kaercher Creek Park


Tim Mazaika of Hamburg, PA has been a 1-man show trying to keep Kaercher Creek Park accessible to those wishing to enjoy the fishing area. The county of Berks abandoned the area several years ago and in 2014 he took it upon himself to mow grass to keep the area open to anyone who enjoyed fishing at Kaercher Creek....be it a lone fisherman, family or a father or mother teaching their son or daughter the excitement of fishing for the first time.

To continued his mission to help 'Kaercher' remain accessible to those wishing to enjoy the fishing area he needs some financial and volunteer support.

Please check out his GoFundMe site at the link below for more information and to help keep this area safe and accessible for everyone to enjoy.
