“The goal of the strategic plan is to ensure that adequate protection is afforded to wild trout resources and that fisheries provided through the management of wild trout and the stocking of adult and fingerling trout will continue to provide excellent angling opportunities in Pennsylvania,” said Jason Detar, Chief of the Division of Fisheries Management.

“The plan includes input provided by a work group that consisted of commission staff, anglers affiliated with a variety of sportsmen’s organizations, and independent anglers not affiliated with a sportsmen’s organization,” he added.

As part of the plan, 22 priority issues have been identified encompassing four primary resource categories, which include:

management of wild trout streams,
management of stocked trout streams,
management of stocked trout lakes, and
trout management in Lake Erie.
