Proposed Changes to List of Class A Wild Trout Waters
Notice is hereby given that the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is considering changes to its list of Class A Wild Trout Streams. Pursuant to 58 Pa. Code §57.8a (relating to Class A wild trout streams), it is the Commission’s policy to manage self-sustaining Class A wild trout populations as a renewable natural resource to conserve that resource and the angling it provides. Class A wild trout populations represent the best of Pennsylvania’s naturally reproducing trout fisheries. The Commission manages these stream sections solely for the perpetuation of the wild trout fishery with no stocking.

At its meeting on January 22 and 23, 2007, the Commission intends to consider three additions to its list of Class A Wild Trout Streams. The Commission will not consider the removal of any streams from the list at that time.

2007 Pennsylvania Fish Licenses Go On Sale December 1st
The calendar may say otherwise, but for anglers the New Year is just days away. That's because 2007 Pennsylvania Fishing Licenses go on sale December 1. Not only are the 2007 licenses available in December, they're also valid immediately at the time of purchase. In essence, buying a Pennsylvania fishing license in December is like getting an extra month at no additional fee.

It's easy to take advantage of this "baker's dozen" of months of fishing fun. To purchase a license from the convenience of your own home, simply fish the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) web site at www.fishandboat.com and click on the yellow link marked “Get Your Fishing License.” You can then complete your transaction online and print out a valid license on a home printer. For those who need to pick up some new gear to go with their license, visit one of more than 1,300 fishing license issuing agents statewide. Issuing agents include bait and tackle shops and the sporting goods departments of many major department stores. Many county treasurers’ offices also carry fishing licenses. A complete list of issuing agents is posted on the PFBC site.

PENNSYLVANIA TROUT ANGLERS BIG ON RECYCLING
Pennsylvania’s trout anglers are big on recycling – fish that is. Two newly-released Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission/Penn State University studies found that the state’s trout anglers have high catch rates and high release rates as well. In fact, most trout caught in Pennsylvania’s waters are released, in turn extending and improving recreational fishing opportunities.
