Unassessed Waters Initiative Pilot Program to be officially launched

We will be officially launching the Unassessed Waters Initiative pilot program at the April 10, 2013 Chapter meeting.  Under this program, anglers will go out and fish the streams that are currently unassessed by the fish and boat commission and report back on what they caught or observed using a form supplied by the PFBC.  This information will then be used by the PFBC to prioritize sampling efforts by their partners for the upcoming field season.  The PFBC will be bringing large paper maps of where all the unassessed waters are for Lycoming and Sullivan counties.  Joe Radley and Carey Entz have agreed to be the coordinators for the Chapter. The PFBC plans to launch the program state-wide in 2014.  The Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited is only one of two organizations selected for this pilot program; the Allegheny Mountain Chapter of TU is the other.  We would like to invite all local trout fisherman, watershed groups, and others who would like to assist in this program to attend the meeting and consider helping out with this monumental effort to get wild trout streams protected.
