Description:
Abstract:
“Pennsylvania’s Best Fishing Waters” program identifies proven waters for specific species.  This listing includes suggestions for distinct species within PA Streams.
Purpose:
Mapping and promotion of the various water bodies in Pennsylvania that are known to have good fishing opportunities.
Supplemental_Information:
This layer was created by selecting the appropriate flowing waters and water bodies from existing PFBC GIS Layers, all of which were derived from the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) layers.  Points were created by calculating the geographic centers of the water bodies and the mid-points of the flowing waters.
