Description

This is the fifth year that Lycoming College CWI has participated with PA Fish and Boat Commission in the Unassessed Waters Project. To date the team from CWI has completed a total of 361 streams in the Loyalsock, Lycoming , and Pine Creek Watersheds. In the past two years streams in the Genesee , Allegheny , White Deer Hole Creek, Black Hole Creek, Quenshukeny, Pine Run and Antes Creeks watersheds as well as unnamed tributaries in Tioga County have been completed. Data for this project has been logged into the PFBC Unassessed Waters Data set for consideration of trout stream protection. The number of class A, B, C, D and E streams in each watershed will be presented. On average 50% of the streams sampled support wild trout and near 20% are considered class A or B trout streams. A breakdown of the benefits and limitations of this program will be presented.
