[ARCHIVED] Graham Park pond stocked, opens for fishing next fall

The fishing lake by the future Scout Plaza, just north of Graham Park’s baseball campus, is now stocked with minnows, bluegill and largemouth bass. But like any new arrivals to Cranberry, they need some private time to make themselves comfortable before holding an open house – in this case, open season for fishing.

The fish, which include 450 bluegill and 30 largemouth bass, were recently transferred to Cranberry by the state Fish and Game Commission from their former Hereford Manor Lakes home in Beaver County. Earthen dams built in the late ‘50s to contain those lakes had weakened. Rebuilding them requires the 45-acre lakes to be drained, putting their fish population at risk. As a result, the Commission welcomed Cranberry’s offer to house some of those fish in its own pond here.

Transfer of the fish was supervised by a Commission biologist. But to ensure their success, the Township is installing a bubbler to circulate water and prevent its freezing over. In addition, the Township has imposed a fishing moratorium until the fall of 2012 to enable the fish to acclimate, nest, and breed in the pond.
