More evidence of improvement...
In 2002 no trout were Electrofished in 282 meters of the river. In 2013 in the same area about 150 wild brook trout were captured in 304 meters of the river, also in one electrofishing pass.

Great news, Mike. Maybe this discovery will make even Chaz rejoice and appreciate all that has been done to clean up the river and reverse some of the abuses the River has suffered over the last century, or so.

ST's Chaz........wild/native ones.

Ned,
In PFBC jargon, "ST" stands for brook trout (ie. "speckled trout"). This can cause some confusion when fish population studies are discussed on this forum.

I've often wondered why PFBC has taken that abbreviation, I no of no one in PA that call brookies 'Speckled Trout.' By my way of thinking that's archaic, and a more southerly name. I'd use the initials of the scientific names.

So then...LT = lightning trout?

I've never fished that far upstream, but it's good news for the skuke for sure.
