Faylor Lake - Snyder County
Fisheries Management staff traveled to Snyder County to perform a one day trapnet survey of Faylor Lake. The purpose of the survey was to try to determine the effect angler harvest may be having on the panfish in the lake. All fish captured were counted and all sportfish were measured in one inch size groups. In addition, scale samples were taken for selected panfish species to determine age and growth rates.
Faylor Lake is a 140 acre impoundment in Spring Township, Snyder County and is managed by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Shoreline and boat angling are permitted but all boats must be manually powered (no gas or electric motors).
We set five Pennsylvania style trapnets in Faylor Lake for one overnight on May 5-6, 2003. The catch consisted almost entirely of panfish. See Table 1 below for the size distribution of the catch.
