Today I underwent surgery on my labrum(shoulder) and will be not casting loops for quite some time. I've decided on using the down time to locate some new wild repro streams and am having trouble finding a map of the area(s) I have in mind. I'm a college student paying loans and all of my spare spending money, yes, even the measly 20 dollars it takes to buy a gazetteer or other quality maps, is being saved for a new 7wt for steel and salmon, every penny counts! Do any of you know of any sites with more detailed maps than the pfbc provides that are free?

Google Earth
start with the pafb, then google earth it.
before we go to a new stream, i google earth it to figure out how to get there and where it flows. zoom in and out, and it's like flying over the terrain. you can turn on and off the roads/map/satellite function to show just what you want and not what you don't. it's not exactly like having topographical maps, but it's sure informative--to a point. none of the images are especially up-to-date, and in some places the resolution is pretty poor, keeping you further away than you might like. but it sure is fun!

I use this site for some nice maps: http://mapper.acme.com/?ll=40.53409,-76.89829&z=15&t=R

I will also try to dig up a list of reproduction streams that I have and post that also. Hope you are feeling better.

Found the reproduction list as of May 15, 2009

This should help you out even more. The GPS coordinates don't seem to be correct though.
