These coldwater plans provide recommendations for the conservation of coldwater fisheries in the upper reaches of the Bushkill Creek watershed. The Upper Bushkill Creek watershed plan includes detailed assessments of fish and macroinvertebrates completed in 2008. Sobers Run is one of the highest quality tributaries to the Bushkill Creek – part of Sobers Run was recently upgraded to an Exceptional Value stream due in part to our work on implementing the recommendations in these plans.

Riparian buffer work was completed based on the results of the conservation plans.
