Section 1: Overview

Originator:Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)

Title: DNR Hydrography - Stream Trout Lakes

Abstract: This layer shows Stream Trout Lakes which are managed by DNR Fisheries for the following stream trout species: brook trout, brown trout, rainbow trout and splake. For more information about lakes managed for stream trout species, see the following:

Lakes Managed for Stream Trout: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/trout_lakes/management.html
Trout Lakes List (list of trout species x lake): http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/fishing/trout_lakes/list.html

Note: "Stream Trout Lakes" are not an official designation, although most of these lakes are also Designated Trout Lakes as listed in MN Rules 6264.0050 http://www.revisor.mn.gov/rules/?id=6264.0050.

Purpose: To support planning, fisheries management, research and other resource-related activities with impact on stream trout lakes. Also supports recreational identification of these resources.

Logical Consistency:

Completeness: Complete

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:


Lineage: Attribute Lineage for source table LAKE_STTRTPY2.DBF: Attributes began with USGS DLG source data and in 2003-2004 were reviewed and updated where possible by DNR Fisheries GIS staff.
The lake polygons are derived from the Open Water feature class of the DNR Hydrography SDE Dataset.
See Associated Data Sets above.

Section 5: Attributes

Overview: The first set of attributes (DNR_HYDRO_ID through CENTER_UTM_Y) are derived from and consistent with the Open Water feature class of the DNR Hydrography SDE Dataset. See DNR Hydrography - Lakes and Open Water The remaining attributes are specific to this layer.

FW_IDenumeratedA unique Fisheries Waterbody ID for joining/linking polygons to DNR Fisheries Lake Survey DB (Oracle). FW_IDs are assigned based on how the waterbody is managed by DNR Fisheries (i.e., an FW_ID may correspond to an entire basin '00' or to a specific sub-basin '01','02',etc.DNR Fisheries
