Sport-Fishing Use and Value: Lower Snake River Reservoirs
December 31, 1999
This 84-page manuscript outlines the results of two surveys conducted in 2000 on sport-fisher spending at the Lower Snake River reservoirs. Section 1 covers sport-fishing demand and section 2 sport-fishing expenditures (types of purchases and the places they occurred). A measure of their willingness to pay for fishing trips plus a notation of their actual expenditures, the study also provides information about the anglers' spending behavior in the area, tourist trends that are useful in estimating impacts on job stimulus and business sales in the region.
