FISH AND BOAT COMMISSION
Changes to List of Class A Wild Trout Waters 2005; Additional Public Comment Period
[35 Pa.B. 1486]
Under 58 Pa. Code § 57.8a (relating to Class A wild trout streams), it is the policy of the Fish and Boat Commission (Commission) 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 naturally reproducing trout fisheries in this Commonwealth. The Commission manages these stream sections solely for the perpetuation of the wild trout fishery with no stocking.
A notice soliciting comments regarding 23 proposed additions to the Commission's list of Class A Wild Trout Streams was published at 34 Pa.B. 6730 (December 18, 2004). At its quarterly meeting on January 25, 2005, the Commission postponed consideration of the proposed additions to the list until its April 2005 meeting to allow for additional public comment.
Persons with comments, objections or suggestions concerning the additions are invited to submit comments 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 completing the form at www.state.pa.us/Fish/regcomments. If an acknowledgment of electronic comments is not received by the sender within 2 working days, the comments should be retransmitted to ensure receipt.
The Commission will consider adding the following waters to the current list of Class A Wild Trout Waters:
