Aug. 27, 2006 Listen to the battle over fishing rights on the Little J. (article prepared June 21, 2006)

A judge will decide whether a 1.3-mile stretch belongs to a private fishing club or to the people of Pennsylvania.

This story, by outdoors writer Deborah Weisberg, was a production of “The Allegheny Front,” broadcast on NPR member station WYEP in Pittsburgh.
