Description

Since 2011 Susquehanna University has participated in the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's Unassessed Waters Initiative. As part of this Initiative we have surveyed over 500 previously Unassessed Waters throughout central Pennsylvania to determine their status as possible Wild Trout streams. We found brook trout in greater than 50% of these streams. Many streams supported robust populations of brook trout.
