Default NHFG; Wild Trout; Magalloway and Wildcat

As has previously been discussed here, a formal rule change has been submitted to allow bait fishing on a section of the Magalloway River. The public meeting for comment is scheduled for November 30 in Lancaster.

I also hear through the grapevine that the department has been very resistant to making changes that support the management of the Wildcat River as a wild trout water. And that the excuse is that there is not a formal state “coldwater fisheries plan” in place to help guide this.

Am I missing something? How are these two positions not at odds with each other?

I don’t have any knowledge of how decisions are made at the senior levels of NHFG, but on the surface it certainly appears they treat wild trout as second class citizens.

I know some folks here have been very active on the Wildcat issue. Am I drawing the wrong conclusion?
