[07/02/20] The Canawacta rod and gun club has decided to not have a fishing derby this year! Due to covid 19 concerns.
Pennsylvania Game Commission
Today, June 25, 2020, marks the Pennsylvania Game Commission's 125th anniversary as the state's wildlife agency, and at no other point in that span has hunting opportunity in the Commonwealth been greater.
From a longer archery deer season that will enable hunters to experience more of the whitetail rut to an earlier-starting squirrel season that will give hunters young and old new incentive to enjoy Penn's Woods in September; from expanded bobcat and river-otter tapping opportunities to the new opportunity for many mentored hunters to apply for their own anterless tags - there has never been a time like the present for Pennsylvania's hunters and trappers.
It's impossible, however, to appreciate how far we've come without understanding where we've been. When the Game Commission was established in 1895, the state's wildlife populations - from black bears to beavers to bluebirds - were badly depleted. So few deer remained, they eventually would be reintroduced. There were laws to protect wildlife, but no one to enforce them. And wildlife habitat was becoming increasingly degraded by deforestation and pollution.
Today, when the state's deer harvest regularly exceeds 350,000, when record numbers of bear hunters are enjoying record success, when Pennsylvanians don't need to leave home to enjoy some of the best elk-hunting in the nation, and when the Keystone State is becoming an increasingly popular destination for small-game hunting, it's hard to imagine such tough times.
Hunters and trappers, who fund wildlife conservation through the annual purchase of their licenses, all can take pride in these accomplishments. The Pennsylvania Game Commission thanks you for all that you contribute and for setting the stage for another 125 years of conservation success.
Pennsylvania Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans
Board of Game Commissioners President Charles Fox

Your Board of Directors has been busy this winter!
We’ve had several meetings and lots of email exchanges to make 2020 one of the best years for you and your families.
Here are some of the headlines!
We’ve been analyzing the report on the condition of the Clubhouse prepared by Mr. Freuhan, PE to see what can be done at reasonable cost to ensure that the building continues to provide a useable space for meetings and other events. We’ve secured estimates on various options and hope to have our recommendation ready to present to the membership for a vote soon.
Contracted services will be used for pond treatment, lawn maintenance and clubhouse cleaning. Member volunteers will perform the pH testing required by the PA DEC. As other needs arise, and the cost is minimal, the Board may contract those or request volunteers from the membership.
Trap:POSTPONED until further notice. Open Trap began on March 12th and will continue each Thursday evening until Fall, weather permitting. We will be abiding by the 6’ social distancing rule.
