In this paper, estimates of value for recreational fishing are reported for three major freshwater impoundments in Queensland, Australia, using both travel cost and contingent valuation methods. Policy analysts often require estimates of value when analysing the importance of recreation against other uses of impoundments, or when considering the potential for further investments, such as with fish stocking programs.

Although activity-general motivations in the context of recreational fishing have received attention previously, the catch-related aspects of recreational fishing are less well understood. Labeled as consumptive orientation, this article seeks to fill a gap in the literature concerning the measurement of these aspects. Based on a modified version of a scale originally developed by Graefe (1980), the authors performed a confirmatory factor analysis on scale responses from a sample of Texas anglers.

Trout Unlimited (TU) is a private, nonprofit organization with more than 150,000 members dedicated to conserving, protecting, and restoring trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds in North America. TU staff and volunteer members engage in education programs, restoration projects, advocacy campaigns, and other conservation activities in support of the organization's mission. In 2001, TU launched a new national initiative named First Cast to teach students the principles of coldwater resource stewardship through the skills of fly-fishing.
