Abstract

The contingent valuation method is used to estimate the economic value of a trout fishing day at the Cache la Poudre River in Colorado. In addition, changes in daily economic value and yearly participation are estimated for changes in the quality of fishing such as: (1) change in catch or size of catch; (2) wild trout fishing versus hatchery trout fishing; (3) change in catch or size under catch and release management. Anglers are grouped by a distinguishing characteristic, skill level, and the economic value of trout fishing and changes in the quality of fishing are compared at different skill levels.
