This document supports the New York State Trout Stream Management Plan ( TSMP) (NYSDEC 2020) by providing DEC Fisheries staff and anglers with a current list of the management categories assigned to New York trout stream reaches. Revision 1 ( March 24, 202 1) Management categories assignments may change as new information (biological, use and access) becomes available . This document will be updated annually in mid – Feb ruary. T his revision contains 9 changes. See section F for det ails. The TSMP establishe d f ive independent categories of trout stream management . T he categories make a sharp distinction between wild trout management (three categories) and stocked trout management (two categories) . See the TSMP (NYSDEC 2020) for a discussion of each category and the objectives and strategies associated with those categories.

The criteria for assigning management categories to stream reaches are listed in Table 1 for wild trout management categories and Table 2 for stocked trout management categories (NYSDEC 2020) . Wild Wild -Quality Wild -Premier Public access Public access Significant access Πat least 3 cumulative miles of reach length in one or more of the following: Public fishing rights Public land Public fishing permitted by landowner Adequate angler parking Not applicable Mean width >10 feet Mean width >20 feet Meets C( T)1 or higher water quality standard or data exists to support C(T) classification wild trout biomass >40 lbs/acre or 300 yearling or older trout/mile wild trout biomass >60 lbs/acre or 500 yearling or older trout/mile abundance of wild trout 9 in potential to catch memorable fish (12 ST, 15 RT or BT) 2 Not applicable Not applicable Reach can physically and biologically accommodate mod erate to high angler use (>150 hr/acre) Stocked Stocked -Extended Access by one or more of the following: Public fishing rights easements Public land Public fishing permitted by landowner Significant access Πat least 3 cumulative miles of reach length in one or more of the following: Public fishing rights Public land Public fishing permitted by landowner Adequate angler par king Mean width >10 feet Mean width >20 feet Survival to end of May Does not already support adequate fisheries for black bass or walleye, even though technically a trout stream Must meet Bp 3 standard Reach conditions offer potential for spring -stocked trout to survive into summer Temperatures generally suitable for regular stocking through mid -June or for two consecutive months Must meet Bs 4 standard >75 hours/acre >150 hours/acr e 1 The C(T) classification applies to waters that support trout and requires evidence of trout presence. 2 ST=brook trout, RT= rainbow trout, and BT=brown trout 3 Marginal put and take trout streams with relatively little potential for wild or holdover contribution (Engstrom -Heg 1990) . 4 Trout streams capable of supporting a spring fishery and some holdover trout, but with habitat deficiencies limiting wild trout (Engstrom- Heg 1990) .

What is in Table 3 Table 3 contains trout stream reaches that have at least a portion that is publicly accessible and have been assigned one of the following categories: Stocked, Stocked – Extended, Wild -Quality and Wild -Premier. Reaches categorized as Wild with a catch -and-release regulation are also included. Each reach can have a mix of public access, informal access and private land. Anglers should respect private property and any posting of private property. Wild and Un -categorized trout stream reaches Many trout streams are categorized either as Wild (publicly accessible) or un -categorized (trout streams not in Table 3 that are on private land). Wild trout stream reaches are not listed in Table 3 due to the number of Wild streams, many of which are unnamed headwater strea ms. If a trout stream reach is not listed, it is likely categorized as Wild or uncategorized. The stream reach may also be listed in Section F: Table of Management Category Changes as the management category may have changed based on new information. DEC R egions Table 3 is organized by NYSDEC Region. The counties contained within DEC Regions is as follows: Nassau and Suffolk counties Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sulliv an, Ulster and Westchester counties Albany, Columbia, Delaware, Greene, Montgomery, Otsego, Rensselaer, Schenectady and Schoharie counties Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Oneida and St. Lawrence counties Broome, Cayuga, Chenango, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga, Oswego, Tioga and Tompkins counties Chemung, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Wayne and Yates counties Allegany, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Erie, Niagara and Wyoming counties

Guide to Table 3 A stream reach is a segment of stream that shares, at a basic level, a common set of physical and biological characteristics that influence its ability to support trout and trout angling opportunity for the public. The miles of the trout stream reach. The total number of trout is the total number of yearlings and 12+ inch trout planned to be stocked . Management categories marked with a CR (for Catch and Release) denote trout stream reaches that have a grandfathered catch -and-release regulation. Table 3.
