Pennsylvania Adds Streams to List of Class A Wild Trout Waters

The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission recently added several streams to their list of Class A Wild Trout Water.  Class A wild trout waters represent the best of Pennsylvania’s naturally wild reproducing trout fisheries. The Commission manages these streams solely for the perpetuation of the wild trout fishery.  These streams do not get stocked with hatchery fish.

The new additions are: Kleinhans Creek, Pike County; Sand Spring Creek, Lackawanna County; Hunter Creek, Carbon County; Catasauqua Creek, Iron Run and Spring Creek, Lehigh County; Shades Creek, Luzerne County.

Class A Trout Water can be wild Brook, Brown or Rainbow trout with different criteria needed for each species of trout.  There are also combined species waters.  The complete list can be found on the PA Fish & Boat Commissions website: http://fishandboat.com
