I don't know if you hunt and know this, but the very last few days of April, 27th, I think, and all of May, is spring turkey season, and the SGLs and State Forests will have a decent amount of turkey hunters.......wear some orange. They are no longer required to wear orange in the spring, so they may not see you, and you may not see them.

The first half of the season from the 27 to the 11th is only hunting till 12 pm, noon. After that it runs sun up till one half hour after technical sunset. I wouldn't let it keep you out of the woods, but be alert. Maybe you're a hunter, who knows, but now everyone knows.
I know if I am in the woods and if it's before noon I won't be trout fishing. I'll be after Ben Franklin's favorite bird. Turkey hunting in the morning and trout fishing during the afternoon. A splendid combination!

Here, here. couldn't agree more.

There are several viewers. Personally, I like the lightning bolt/preview data thing, as it gives you the best topo map combined with the highlighted info.

Lots of maps there to use. Personally, I use the "stream sections that support wild trout" the most, and "class A wild trout streams" the second most.

If you're a GPS/smartphone guy, UFMGuy has some of these applications available for car based GPS units, and more of them available for smartphones.

I agree, and have them both, but some of the internet maps have much more fishing relevant information on them, and can cut down on the dud stream trips.

I hit a home run last weekend with this stream by using the information on this map. With a Higbee and Delorme it can be like a needle in a hay stack.

To view high resolution topos for PA (and the rest of the USA) you could try Gmap4. It works in most browsers from smartphones to desktops.

Here is a random small stream in PA. Zoom out to get your bearings.

EDIT: The software on this forum has messed up this link. You will need to copy it and paste it into your browser address bar.

Just saw your post on here about potter county wild trout. I have a place in Potter just a couple miles past wharton. Would you be able to let me know which small streams would carry the wild trout?

Almost every small stream in Potter has at least a small population of wild trout. If you have the chance in the middle of the summer use a stream thermometer and test how cold the stream is. If its below 65 degrees in midsummer then theres trout in it. (probably)

CWE, use the following link. On the right side, click "google physical". Pan and zoom at your heart's delight to the area of interest. All the streams overlayed with light blue lines are streams which have wild trout. Click on the stream and it gives you it's name.

That map is a great resource Pat. It has opened my eyes to a few places worthy of exploration. Thanks.
