PA Waltz Creek
Marker Description: The Waltz Creek is a Class A trout stream supporting native brown trout.

Waltz Creek fish populations were sampled in 1994 and 1999. Seven species of fish were captured in Waltz Creek predominantly the shield darter (Percina peltata); brown trout (3.3-11.5 inches in size) and minimal rainbow trout (6 - 12.6 inches). Other than the coldwater species of Brown and rainbow trout, the rest, while commonly found in cold water streams, are more widely adaptive and temperature tolerant "coolwater fishes". The numbers of brown trout below the stocking size suggest natural reproduction. However, Greenwalk Creek supports a trout hatchery, which raises the possibility of sub-legal sized "escapees" (especially the observed rainbows).

Overall, the Waltz Creek fishery has a low-to-moderate density brown trout population.

Fished today with a trout magnet and a small brown bead head dropper. I had a number of follows from small brook trout in the 6 to 8 inch range. I had one larger trout about 12 inches on the line but I didn't land the fish. There is a parking area pull off with a red sign saying "please don't litter". After crossing the small stream, there is a ATV size gravel road that follows along the stream. The stream is very small and runs relatively shallow. There are a few good pools with high numbers of trout that are not that easy to catch. Surprising high trout population.
