Classification of Wild Trout Stream Sections

[34 Pa.B. 926]

   Under 58 Pa. Code § 57.11 (relating to listing of wild trout streams), it is the policy of the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) to accurately identify and classify stream sections supporting naturally reproducing populations of trout as wild trout stream sections. The listing of a stream section as a wild trout stream section is a biological designation that does not determine how it is managed. The Commission uses many factors in determining the appropriate management of streams. The Commission's Fisheries Management Division maintains the list of wild trout stream sections. The Executive Director, with the approval of the Commission, will from time to time publish the list of wild trout stream sections in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. A notice soliciting comments regarding the list was published at 33 Pa.B. 6292 (December 20, 2003). At its quarterly meeting on January 27, 2004, the Commission decided to defer consideration of the list until its April 2004 meeting and to solicit public comments until April 9, 2004.

   Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the classification of the stream sections listed may submit them in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000 by 4 p.m. on April 9, 2004. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted. Comments also may be submitted electronically to A subject heading of the proposal and a return name and address must be included in each transmission. In addition, all electronic comments must be contained in the text of the transmission, not in an attachment. If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the comments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt.
