FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Proposed Additions; July 2023
[53 Pa.B. 2815]
[Saturday, May 20, 2023]
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 July 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:
County of Mouth Stream Name Section Limits Tributary to Mouth
Chester Blackburn Run Headwaters to Mouth Octoraro Creek 39.774167
Chester Unnamed tributary (UNT) to Octoraro Creek (RM 9.37) Headwaters to Mouth Octoraro Creek 39.762977
Chester UNT to Octoraro Creek
Headwaters to Mouth Octoraro Creek 39.766840
Clinton UNT to East Branch Queens Run (RM 2.39) Headwaters to Mouth East Branch Queens Run 41.206816
Delaware Hunter Run Headwaters to Mouth Springton Reservoir 39.965844
Lancaster Reynolds Run Headwaters to Mouth Octoraro Creek 39.737145

Potter Cole Branch Headwaters to Mouth Dodge Hollow Run 41.923957
York Mahala Run Headwaters to Mouth Susquehanna River 39.937544
Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the classification of the streams listed may submit them in writing to the 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 may also be submitted electronically to RAemail@example.com. Electronic comments submitted in any other manner will not be accepted.
