Abstract:
This layer contains flowing waters from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Fisheries Resource Database that are under the Wilderness Trout Designation.  Wilderness trout stream management is based upon the provision of a wild trout fishing experience in a remote, natural and unspoiled environment where man's disruptive activities are minimized. Established in 1969, this option was designed to protect and promote native (brook trout) fisheries, the ecological requirements necessary for natural reproduction of trout and wilderness aesthetics. The superior quality of these watersheds is considered an important part of the overall angling experience on wilderness trout streams. Therefore, all stream sections included in this program qualify for the Exceptional Value (EV) special protected water use classification, which represents the highest protection status provided by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
Purpose:
Mapping and analysis of flowing waters that are under the Wilderness Trout Designation in Pennsylvania. Promotion of fishing 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.
