The report deals with the economic value of the recreation provided by a stream fishery. The investigation was based on over three thousand interviews of stream fishermen and on the methodology widely described in the literature for tying the economic value of recreation to the willingness to travel to enjoy it and the cost thereof. The study concludes with a numerical technique for estimating the annual fisherman-days per mile and the annual economic value associated with any mile of stream fishing in Kentucky. (Author)
