WV Streams - High Quality

The stream listing was prepared by district fisheries biologists with the WVDNR's Wildlife Resources Section in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service and other state and federal agencies. Criteria for selection are (1) streams with native or stocked populations of trout and (2) warm water streams five or more miles in length with desirable fish populations that are utilized by the public.

This information is made available to agencies involved in projects that may cause stream disturbances in order to highlight the importance of avoiding activities that impact fish populations, especially trout. The high quality streams dataset is a subset of the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) for West Virginia. WVDNR provided these data in the form of event tables in an ESRI personal geodatabase. WV GIS Technical Center personnel converted the event tables to feature classes, which were then exported as shapefiles. Separate watershed shapefiles and a single merged file are available for download.
