The dilemma to do what's right or to do what's right
I would report a sighting that all
Now they may spend taxpayers money to send someone out to look for the fish. so then you have another dilemma.
I would research PA laws and such on the matter

Well I called the PA fish and game commission, talked to an officer who's response was "at least it's not an alligator" (omg!!) and "more power to me if I can catch him" I figured out that they don't care if I keep him so long as he doesn't go back into a lake pond or stream that he can corrupt. So... Anyone looking to adopt a goldfish?

That's quite rude. I'm guessing your state doesn't care much for it's waters with that attitude.
Send a PM to thekoimaiden. She may know of a home for him.

Wow, what an amazing find, here we don't really find anything in the streams but plants, there's lots of cabomba, water lettuce and water hyacinth. I think cabomba is native here but the other two are invasive. It is kind of suprising that the moor survived for a while though the fancier breeds are less hardy but all goldfish can withstand a ton of mistreatment and I believe that they are the hardier of the fancy breeds anyways

Common plecs are actually quite invasive in Texas. :p

Well I guess they tend to stay at the bottom. xD But yea Texas is pretty vulnerable to such things since it's always warm enough there for them.
Actually I did see a pleco that was caught up in an Ontario river at a museum, don't see how it could have survived a winter. :O

Lol. I googled invasive Plecos in texas and this came up. This river is actually kinda close to me

It makes sense though because this river is 72 degrees year round
