This Stream Corridor Management Plan (SCMP) is the result of a highly collaborative effort among government agencies, non-profit organizations, and watershed stakeholders in the Upper Delaware River (UDR) Tailwaters. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the unique conditions and management needs of the waterways that make up the Tailwaters of the Pepacton and Cannonsville Reservoirs. The construction of the reservoir system resulted in the establishment of a world class wild trout fishery and cold water ecosystem. The UDR now offers extraordinary recreational opportunities and is rapidly emerging as an important economic anchor for the region. As such, the SCMP recognizes the integral role that the UDR Tailwaters play in the daily lives of watershed residents and stakeholders. The SCMP is a non-regulatory resource management plan and is designed to be used by a wide range of watershed practitioners and the public to ensure that the watershed is managed through progressive approaches based on sound science.
