2009 Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Additions and Adjustments to List
[39 Pa.B. 2420]
[Saturday, May 9, 2009]
The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) has approved additions and adjustments to its list of wild trout streams as published in 39 Pa.B. 1366 (March 14, 2009) with the exception of the removal of Little Piney Creek, Somerset County. The Commission did not approve the removal of this stream from its list of wild trout streams at this time.
Under 58 Pa. Code § 57.11 (relating to listing of wild trout streams), it is the policy of the Commission to accurately identify and classify stream sections supporting naturally reproducing populations of trout as wild trout streams. 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. The Commission's Fisheries Management Division maintains the complete list of wild trout streams, and it is available on the Commission's web site at http://sites.state.pa.us/PA_Exec/Fish_Boat/trout_repro.htm.
