"No finer trout-streams in the world than these": The Making of a Recreational Fishery in the Black Hills Forest Reserve

In his article, “‘No finer trout-streams in the world than these’: The Making of a Recreational Fishery in the Black Hills Forest Reserve,” John R. Henris details the reengineering of streams in the Black Hills to form a system that hatched, distributed, and protected two million trout annually at its peak. At the center of this “fish culture” was Spearfish, where a federal hatchery was founded in 1899. Today, the facility is known as the D. C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives. Henris is assistant professor of history at the University of Arkansas at Monticello and a graduate of Black Hills State University.
