The Spillway: The Spillway located near Linesville has attracted visitors even before construction was completed. Carp that were in the Shenango River began gathering at the spillway to capture natural food that was being washed over the bowl. Over time, tourists began feeding bread to the carp and ducks that gathered there. Today, over 300,000 yearly visitors make this one of their vacation stops. The tradition of feeding fish at the spillway is a unique exception to DCNR’s “No Feeding Wildlife” policy. Wildlife, including geese, have been attracted to this spillway bowl since it was constructed in 1934. The flow of water over the bowl provides a smorgasbord of plant material, insect larvae, crayfish and other invertebrates for waterfowl and fish to eat. In the 1930s, it was common to feed wildlife at parks and the spillway was no exception. Roadside vendors began to provide bread to feed the fish. As word of this unique area spread, it quickly became a popular tourist attraction. DCNR allows fish-feeding at the spillway because of its cultural and historical value. Feeding wildlife may provide a few minutes of entertainment, but it can lead to serious problems for both humans and wildlife. HISTORY Follow posted rules and regulations and remember these important principles: • Do not feed wildlife anywhere in the park with the unique exception of fish-feeding at the spillway. • When feeding fish at the spillway, use the traditional bread or pellets, which target fish instead of ducks and geese. Do not feed fish other foods such as chips, popcorn or pastries. • Keep areas clean of food and litter. PA Game Commission Wildlife Learning Center: The center houses offices for the waterfowl management area and for the land management area that includes Game Land 214. It also has a visitor center with exhibits focused on native wildlife. There is a paved interpretive walking trail that showcases the forest, lake and old farm habitats that are common at Pymatuning. PA Fish & Boat Commission Hatchery: Originally constructed in 1939, the Linesville Fish Culture Station (hatchery) is situated on 97 developed acres of land managed by the Fish and Boat Commission. The facility consists of earthen ponds, exterior concrete raceways, a hatchery building that contains interior stainless steel and concrete raceways, and jar and vertical flow through tray egg incubators. The hatchery building has a visitor center showing the operation of the hatchery and exploring the fish, reptiles and amphibians of Pennsylvania including a twostory aquarium featuring live Pymatuning Lake fish.
