Briar Creek LAKE

Located in Columbia County, Briar Creek Lake is a 51-acre impoundment owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public fishing and boating.

FISHING

The Commission stocks Briar Creek Lake with trout. It is designated as: Stocked Trout Waters Open to Year-Round Fishing.

Fish habitat structures have been placed in the lake (view PDF map) over the years as part of the Commission's Fish Habitat Improvement Program.

A fishing pier is available for persons with disabilities.

BOATING

Boating is limited to boats powered by electric motors and un-powered boats. One launch ramp is available along with associated parking facilities.

Un-powered boats may be moored at the lake in accordance with Commission property regulations. To be used at the lake, boats must be registered or have a valid launch permit (permits are issued by the Commission or PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources).
