From 1967 to 1970, an inventory was made of the wildlife resources of the Upper Green River in Wyoming with the objectives of evaluating the general quality of the wildlife resources and of predicting the effects of water development programs on these resources in the future. Fish resources inventory included densities per river mile for wild and stocked rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, and whitefish. An average of 6,500 trout was harvested each summer from the public fishing areas. An estimated 5,760 fishermen and associates used the three public fishing areas, which averaged 88 fishermen per mile per summer and 0.72 fishermen per mile per day. The majority of fishermen and associates expressed satisfaction with fishing, scenery, wildlife, and the present state of area development. The results of a postcard survey indicated that the estimated total value of the fishery was $548,370, or $12,180 per river mile. (Author Modified Abstract)
