Designation of 1999 Class A Wild Trout Waters

[29 Pa.B. 4624]

   The Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) is considering the republication of its list of Class A Wild Trout Streams. Under 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.

   Criteria developed for Class A Wild Trout fisheries are species specific. Wild Trout Abundance Class Criteria include provisions for:

   (i)  Wild Brook Trout Fisheries

   (A)  Total brook trout biomass of at least 30 kg/ha (26.7 lbs/acre).

   (B)  Total biomass of brook trout less than 15 cm (5.9 inches) in total length of at least 0.1 kg/ha (0.089 lb/acre).

   (C)  Brook trout biomass must comprise at least 75% of the total trout biomass.

   (ii)  Wild Brown Trout Fisheries

   (A)  Total brown trout biomass of at least 40 kg/ha (35.6 lbs/acre).

   (B)  Total biomass of brown trout less than 15 cm (5.9 inches) in total length of at least 0.1 kg/ha (0.089 lb/acre).

   (C)  Brown trout biomass must comprise at least 75% of the total trout biomass.

   (iii)  Mixed Wild Brook and Brown Trout Fisheries

   (A)  Combined brook and brown trout biomass of at least 40 kg/ha (35.6 lbs/acre).

   (B)  Total biomass of brook trout less than 15 cm (5.9 inches) in total length of at least 0.1 kg/ha (0.089 lb/acre).

   (C)  Total biomass of brown trout less than 15 cm (5.9 inches) in total length of at least 0.1 kg/ha (0.089 lb/acre).

   (D)  Brook trout biomass must comprise less than 75% of the total trout biomass.

   (E)  Brown trout biomass must comprise less than 75% of the total trout biomass.

   (iv)  Wild Rainbow Trout Fisheries

   Total biomass of rainbow trout less than 15 cm (5.9 inches) in total length of at least 2.0 kg/ha (1.78 lbs/acre).

   In order for a water to be removed from the Class A Wild Trout Streams designation, total trout biomass must be documented below the set criteria for two consecutive stream examinations.

   The Commission intends to consider the designation of Class A Wild Trout Streams at its meeting on September 27, 1999. Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the designations are invited to submit comments in writing to Executive Director, Fish and Boat Commission, P. O. Box 67000, Harrisburg, PA 17106-7000, by no later than September 24, 1999. Comments submitted by facsimile will not be accepted.

   Comments also may be submitted electronically at ''regulations @ fish.state.pa.us.'' A subject heading of the proposal and a return name and address must be included in each transmission. In addition, all electronic comments must be contained in the text of the transmission, not in an attachment. If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the comments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt.
