Pending Stream Changes in Pennsylvania

Pending Stream Changes in Pennsylvania
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission recently announced a few possible changes to stream classifications.

The Commission will consider adding Walker Run, Luzerne County, from the headwaters downstream to the mouth, to the list of Wild Trout Streams. Two surveys found wild brown trout and a Division of Environmental Services’ survey found both fingerlings and multiple year classes.

In addition, the Commission will consider removing classification for the special regulation section of Fishing Creek in Columbia County. That section of Fishing Creek is currently designated as a Delayed Harvest Artificial Lures Only section of water. It is speculated this change is due to a new landowner in the area no longer permitting access to the special regulation area along the stream.

At this time, the Commission is soliciting public input concerning the above re- designation. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the re-designation are invited to submit comments in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P.O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000.

The next Commission meeting is scheduled for October 5 and 6, 2009.

Stream classifications that are based on channel form, such as the Rosgen Level II classification, are useful tools for the physical description and grouping of streams and for providing a means of communication for stream studies involving scientists and (or) managers with different backgrounds.
