Info on the summit....

"PFBC to Host Wild Trout Summit

?HARRISBURG, Pa. (July 17) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced today that it will host a wild trout summit open to the public at its Centre County regional office on Saturday, Aug. 26 beginning at 9:30 a.m.
“This is the first time the agency has hosted a meeting to discuss wild trout,” said Andy Shiels, Director of the PFBC Bureau of Fisheries. “This will bring agency, academic and Trout Unlimited experts together to present and discuss the past, present and future of Pennsylvania’s wild trout resources.”
The event will be held at the PFBC’s newly renovated Centre Region Office Building, located at 595 East Rolling Ridge Drive in Bellefonte, PA 16823. This Centre County location can be easily reached via I-99 by taking the Bellefonte/Route 150 North exit.
Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. The program will start at 10:15 a.m. and conclude at 4 p.m.
Speakers will present information on the history of wild trout management in Pennsylvania, the Unassessed Wild Trout Waters Initiative, special regulations for wild trout, and how environmental permit review affects wild trout protection.
In addition, there will be presentations on the potential impacts of climate change, the PFBC’s wild trout stream habitat improvement priorities, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Wild Trout Management Plan, and Implications of Genetics on Wild Trout Management.
New information on several Penn State University trout radio-tracking studies will also be provided.
Finally, there will a panel discussion at the end of the day to bring the presenters together for a question and answer session with the attendees. A tentative agenda can be viewed on the PFBC website.
The Wild Trout Summit is open to the public, but registration is required. Attendees may register online.
“This will be an informative event and an opportunity for wild trout enthusiasts and supporters to spend a day learning about a truly unique Commonwealth aquatic resource,” added Shiels.

I believe that, when I was active at PA council level, we were aware that they had a management plan. This isn't new news.

If you look at the full agenda you see that time scheduled for questions and discussion is only 40 minutes.

How much of that 40 minutes were you planning to take for talking about largemouth bass in Hammer Creek?

Lol none.

I want to discuss special regulation expansion on waters in pa or lack there of and brook trout restoration.

Unless you want me to mention the bass in Hammer Creek. Had the newspapers out there Monday. They got a good look at them, hopefully people remove them.

You registered Dwight? Hope you come.

Thanks for the info. There is some info there about DCNR adding large woody debris to streams to improve habitat. I think that is fairly new for them.

I clicked the link but the section about large woody debris won't open the link for more info. Are you talking about the use of large winches to pull down trees and create crossing log jams to gather sediment behind them and hold them in place?

I was just discussing this with a local TU member here and it possible use on streams that were ravaged by storms. These streams are too far in the woods for heavy equipment. Cool stuff it's been used in WV with great success.

I'm curious to the lowered velocity used on Big Spring to favor brook trout. Is it just those fish that favor a lower velocity or all brook trout?
I ask because it would be interesting to see if lowering the velocity on mountain streams while doing habitat enhancement might produce bigger trout. Though on high gradient streams this would be tough to attain.

That link doesn't work. But if you Google:

"Improving Stream Habitat on State Forest Land by Adding Large Woody Debris"

you will find a link to the document.

They recently completed some of this in Michaux: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php ... 892460814&id=112648995813

Pretty simple project really, just chainsaw a few trees so they fall just so.....a bit of grumbling from other user groups though since they dropped trees across a kinda popular hiking/biking trail and did nothing to keep the trail open.

Oddly enough I fished that stretch of creek recently and was impressed by the new habitat. Never put two and two together. Good stuff!
