Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Proposed Additions and Revisions; January 2022

[51 Pa.B. 7319]
[Saturday, November 20, 2021]

 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 24 and 25, 2022, 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 of Mouth Stream Name

Bedford Hickory Bottom Creek Headwaters to Mouth Yellow Creek 40.192591
Elk UNT to Powers Run (RM 1.51) Headwaters to Mouth Powers Run 41.484032

Venango UNT to Two Mile Run Reservoir
(RM 6.35)
