Minnesota Trout Streams

This page last updated: 2006-08-09 09:12:25.0
Metadata created using Minnesota Geographic Metadata Guidelines


Metadata Summary

Originator Minnesota DNR - Division of Fisheries
Abstract This layer shows legally designated trout streams and trout stream tributaries as identified in Minnesota Rules Chapter 6264. See http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/arule/6264/0050.html for legal descriptions and restrictions associated with designated trout waters. This data layer is a subset of the DNR 24K streams layer, a statewide streams-hydrography data set cooperatively developed amongst many units of government within Minnesota.
Use Tips This data set includes designated trout streams and their protected tributaries only. It is a subset of the DNR 24K streams layer. Users are encouraged to use the full resolution DNR 24K streams layer as a base layer to visualize all streams (designated and not) to fully understand hydrological connectivity and impacts to trout resources.

Title Minnesota Trout Streams

See http://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/arule/6264/0050.html for legal descriptions and restrictions associated with designated trout waters.

Users are encouraged to use the full resolution DNR 24K streams layer as a base layer to visualize all streams (designated and not) to fully understand hydrological connectivity and impacts to trout resources.
Purpose To support land use planning, watershed management, timber harvest plans, and other natural resource management activities with impact on trout streams. Also supports recreational access to trout resources.

Section 5 Entity and Attribute Information Top of full metadata Top of page
Entity and Attribute Overview Data Elements for Attribute Table STRM_TROUTLN3.DBF:

STRM_TYPE: Roughly analogous to the feature-type field in the MnDOT Source data

STRM_LONG: Long description of values (as described above under strm_type)

STRM_SRC: Source of feature

TROUT_FLAG: Denotes whether a stream segment is a designated trout stream or tributary according to Minnesota Rules 6264. Designation is defined on the basis of PLS sections.

PROD_PHASE: Production phase

STRM_NAME: Holds stream named derived from USGS quad map sources

DITCH_ABBR: Ditch name abbreviation

DITCH_NAME: Ditch name obtained from various large scale sources

RCH_CODE: Environmental Protection Agency River Reach Code. Not implemented.

RCH_NAME: Environmental Protection Agency stream name. Not implemented.

RCH_DATE: Environmental Protection Agency date of reach assignment. Not implemented

KITTLE_NO: DNR Kittle Number (Fisheries stream identifier). Currently implemented on a limited basis on this layer.

KITTNAME: DNR Kittle Watercourse Name (Fisheries stream name). If an alternate name exists, only one is specified here. Currently implemented on a limited basis on this layer.

PROD_SRC: Source organization for production work

PROD_PER: Year production work was done by source organization (see Prod_src); [range 1996-current year]

STRM_BRK: Arc break code, for DNR Waters Lakeshed Delineation Project.

PWI_FLAG: Denotes whether a stream segment is a protected watercourse as designated by Protected Waters Inventory.
