Abstract:
This layer contains flowing waters from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Fisheries Resource Database located around the Lake Erie Steehhead fishing area. Mapping of the locations of these public access areas throughout Pennsylvania will help promote fishing and boating opportunities in Pennsylvania.****WARNING:  THESE MAPS ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR OR SHOULD NOT BE INTERRPUTED AS LAND SURVEYS OR LEGAL DOCUMENTS. ****There may be errors in the maps or data.  The maps or data may be outdated, inaccurate, and may omit important information, so it may not be suitable for your use.  Do not rely on the available information from this application, nor represent to others that the information obtained from this application is accurate or complete.
Purpose:
Mapping of the locations of these public access areas throughout Pennsylvania will help promote fishing and boating opportunities in Pennsylvania
Supplemental_Information:
This data set was created by loading both River Mile values and latitude/longitude coordinates of section limits existing in the PFBC Fisheries database.  The locational values were originally derived from a variety of sources including GPS, scaling from USGS maps and aerial photography.  Tools in ArcMap were used to generate the stream sections from these values.  Each section was checked against the descriptions contained for each upstream and downstream section limit and the sections were adjusted where necessary.  The current 1:24000 National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) flowing waters layer was used as the base for drawing the sections and this data is coincident with NHD.
