Eight hundred and eighty pounds of 9- to 10-inch rainbow trout have been placed in the Parks reservoir during the month of August, according to an announcement by A.H. Greene, state fish warden. The reservoir has been furnishing some fine trout fishing, Greene stated, and since it is the only trout water in the county, it gets heavy fishing pressure. In effort to keep up with the demand, 2,500 catchable size fish were hauled from the federal hatchery at Spearfish, S.D., and stocked in the reservoir. Other efforts are also going and eradicating undesirable fish, he said.
