Sportsmen are reminded by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission that while sunny days and fall foliage tempt may give the impression of mild weather, it is important for fall boaters to wear a life jacket.

"According to Pennsylvania's boating accident reports, almost 80 percent of all boating fatalities happen to boaters not wearing a life jacket," PFBC Boating and Watercraft Safety manager Ryan Walt said. "During the cold weather months boaters are especially at risk due to the water temperature and the risk of sudden cold water immersion."
