FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Proposed Additions and Revisions; January 2023
[52 Pa.B. 7231]
[Saturday, November 19, 2022]
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, 2023, 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:
Stream Name Section Limits Tributary to Mouth Lat/Lon Clinton Morris Run Headwaters to Mouth West Branch Susquehanna River 41.237439
Fulton Wooden Bridge Creek Headwaters to Pump Station Road (T-428) bridge Sideling Hill Creek 40.111111
Northumberland Trout Run Headwaters to Mouth Shamokin Creek 40.804167
Warren Mud Run Headwaters to Mouth Jackson Run 41.900525
Warren Valentine Run Headwaters to Mouth Rhine Run 41.920412
The Commission also will consider the following revisions to the section limits of streams on the list:
Stream Name Current Limits Revised Limits Tributary to Mouth
Bradford Little Schrader Creek Marsh Run to Mouth Headwaters to Mouth Schrader Creek 41.619720
Centre Marsh Creek Headwaters to Little Marsh Creek Headwaters to Mouth Bald Eagle Creek 41.058887
Huntingdon Crooked Creek Headwaters to UNT at RM 5.10 Headwaters to Mouth Juniata River 40.483533
Luzerne Hunlock Creek T-534 to Mouth Headwaters to Mouth North Branch Susquehanna River 41.203888
Luzerne Little Shickshinny Creek T-429 to Mouth Headwaters to Mouth Shickshinny Creek 41.153839
