Abstract:
Many streams, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs are officially classified as "stocked trout waters." This means that these waters contain significant portions that are open to public fishing and are stocked with trout. The waters in this layer are flowing waters (not lakes) classified as "stocked trout waters" and these are open to trout harvest during the "extended season" (see Commonwealth Inland Waters). Unlisted tributary streams (those not included in this list of "approved trout waters") are not open to harvest of trout during the "extended season." Only approved trout waters and all waters downstream of approved trout waters are open during this period. Spearing fish is not permitted in any of these waters at any time of the year. These waters are closed to all fishing (including taking of minnows) from March 1 to 8 a.m. on the opening day of the trout season. A person shall be deemed to be fishing if he or she has in possession any fishing line, rod, or other device that can be used for fishing while on or in any water or on the banks within 25 feet of any water where fishing is prohibited. Check with the nearest Fish and Boat Commission office if there is any question about whether or not a water area is "approved."
Purpose:
Mapping and analysis of the approved trout waters in Pennsylvania. Promotion of Pennsylvania trout fishing opportunities.
Supplemental_Information:
This layer was created based on the 1:24000 National Hydropahy Dataset (NHD) flowing waters layer.  The appropriate portions of the  flowing waters were copied into the layer and merged based on the regulatory definition of each approved trout water.  This resulted in one stream segment per each defined approved trout water.
