FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Proposed Additions to List
[42 Pa.B. 738]
[Saturday, February 4, 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 April 11 and 12, 2012, 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 Clarion UNT to Clarion River (Gravel Lick) Clarion River Headwaters to mouth Clearfield Left Branch Moose Creek Moose Creek Headwaters to mouth Clearfield Montgomery Run Dubois Reservoir Headwaters to mouth Clearfield Right Branch Moose Creek Moose Creek Headwaters to mouth Clearfield UNT to Anderson Creek (I80) Anderson Creek Headwaters to mouth Clearfield UNT to Anderson Creek (Rockton) Anderson Creek Headwaters to mouth Clearfield UNT to Dubois Reservoir Dubois Reservoir Headwaters to Dubois Reservoir Clearfield UNT to Morgan Run (Alberts Run) Morgan Run Headwaters to mouth Clearfield UNT to Morgan Run (Crooked Sewer Run) Morgan Run Headwaters to mouth Clinton Green Run West Branch Susquehanna River Headwaters to mouth Elk McClellan Run Spring Creek Headwaters to mouth Huntingdon Tatman Run Raystown Lake Headwaters to mouth Jefferson Pine Run Clarion River Headwaters to mouth Lehigh UNT to Trout Creek (Slatedale) Trout Creek Headwaters to mouth Luzerne Barnes Run Black Creek Headwaters to mouth
Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the classification of the streams listed may submit them in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. 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.
Comments also may be submitted electronically by completing the form at www.fishandboat.com/regcomments. If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the comments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt. Electronic comments submitted in any other manner will not be accepted.
