Spring Creek Update from the PFBC

Spring Creek Update from the PFBC
Spring Creek in Centre County is one of Pennsylvania’s premier limestone streams. The stream provides a wonderful source of cold and fertile water year round for this Class A wild trout stream. A favorite for many in the state and highly regarded for those who travel to Pennsylvania for a rewarding fly-fishing experience.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) provided an update and report on changes that have occurred on the stream in the past couple of years. The removal of the McCoy-Linn Dam was one of the biggest changes that happen in September of 2007. A dam had been at the location since the 1700’s. The initial trout survey in July of 2008 showed about a threefold increase in biomass following the dam’s removal.

Several more habitat improvement projects are planned over the next couple of years on Spring Creek. Review the full report on the PFBC website: Spring Creek Biologist Report.
