**ALERT** Pennsylvania's wild trout need your voice by September 17!

Pennsylvania is home to 16,000 miles of wild trout streams.

Thanks to the PA Fish and Boat Commission, 36 new Wild Trout waters and three Class A streams have been proposed for upgraded designation at the Commission’s quarterly meeting on October 21-22. With your help, we can secure protections for these additional streams from development and pollution.

The public is invited to participate by filing comment in support of these upgraded protections. Pennsylvanians have been vocal in our support over the past 12 months, with more than 1,400 comments filed in favor of new protections.

With your help, we can see PA's total miles of protected wild trout water continue to grow in 2019.

Left unprotected, these streams, which provide clean drinking water to millions of Pennsylvanians, are at risk of pollution and sedimentation from stormwater runoff, high temperatures as a result of the destruction of streamside buffers, and reduced flows because of water withdrawals.

Take action today! Click on these links to file public comment in support of Class A stream upgrades, and here for Wild Trout stream upgrades. Comments are due to the Commission no later than September 17, 2019. 

In drafting your comment, tell the Fish & Boat Commission why wild trout streams are important to you and why they deserve upgraded protection. Share a story with a particular stream and its value to the local community
