FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Classification of Wild Trout Streams; Correction; October 2012
[42 Pa.B. 5595]
[Saturday, August 25, 2012]
Under 58 Pa. Code § 57.11 (relating to listing of wild trout streams), it is the policy of the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) to accurately identify and classify stream sections supporting naturally reproducing populations of trout as wild trout streams. The Commission's Fisheries Management Division maintains the list of wild trout streams. The Executive Director, with the approval of the Commission, will from time to time publish the list of wild trout streams in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. The listing of a stream section as a wild trout stream is a biological designation that does not determine how it is managed. The Commission relies upon many factors in determining the appropriate management of streams.
By notice at 42 Pa.B. 4672 (July 21, 2012), the Commission solicited public comments concerning proposed changes to its list of wild trout streams to be considered at its October 1 and 2, 2012, meeting. Specifically, the Commission sought public comments regarding the addition of 14 streams or portions of streams to the wild trout streams list. Among these streams was Big Spring Run, Westmoreland County, from the headwaters to Big Spring Reservoir. The Commission, however, previously designated Big Spring Run as a wild trout stream from the headwaters to the mouth. Therefore, the Commission now proposes only to adjust the limits of the wild trout stream designation.
Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the adjustment may submit them in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000, within 30 days after publication of this notice in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.
Comments also may be submitted electronically by com- pleting the form at www.fishandboat.com/regcomments. If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the com-ments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt. Electronic comments submitted in any other manner will not be accepted.
