FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Proposed Additions to List; January 2013
[42 Pa.B. 7151]
[Saturday, November 17, 2012]
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 streams. The Commission's Fisheries Management Division maintains the list of wild trout streams. The Executive Director, with the approval of the Commission, will from time to time publish the list of wild trout streams in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. The listing of a stream section as a wild trout stream is a biological designation that does not determine how it is managed. The Commission relies upon many factors in determining the appropriate management of streams.
At the next Commission meeting on January 23 and 24, 2013, the Commission will consider changes to its list of wild trout streams. Specifically, the Commission will consider the addition of the following streams or portions of streams to the list:
County Stream Name Tributary To Section Limits Armstrong Glade Run Mahoning Creek Lake Headwaters to mouth Cambria O'Connor Run Dalton Run Headwaters to mouth Clarion Trap Run Mill Creek Headwaters to mouth Elk Benninger Creek Brandy Camp Creek Headwaters to mouth Fayette Laurel Run Mill Run Headwaters to mouth Fayette Rock Spring Run Youghiogheny River Headwaters to mouth Schuylkill UNT to Little Schuylkill River (RM 17.55 - W Penn) Little Schuylkill River Headwaters to mouth Schuylkill UNT to UNT to Little Schuylkill River (New Ringgold) UNT to Little Schuylkill River (New Ringgold) Headwaters to mouth Schuylkill UNT to UNT to Little Schuylkill River (W Penn) UNT to Little Schuylkill River (W Penn) Headwaters to mouth Schuylkill West Creek Muddy Branch Headwaters to mouth Somerset Keller Run Clear Run Headwaters to mouth Somerset Laurel Run Whites Creek Headwaters to mouth Somerset Twomile Run Quemahoning Reservoir Headwaters to mouth Somerset UNT to North Fork Bens Creek (RM 3.60) North Fork Bens Creek Headwaters to mouth Somerset UNT to Quemahoning Reservoir Quemahoning Reservoir Headwaters to mouth Somerset UNT to South Fork Bens Creek (RM 6.82) South Fork Bens Creek Headwaters to mouth Wyoming UNT to Leonard Creek (Beaumont) Leonard Creek Headwaters to mouth

Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000, within 30 days after publication of this notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.
