More than a hatchery

What he created has become the gem of a community, and an archive of fisheries knowledge.  His legacies lives on through an ever-expanding fisheries archive, active youth activities, 150,000+ visitors each year, and fish production/stocking within South Dakota and beyond.  Visit the D.C.

Fishing is Family

Doug "Duke" Seiner is a lifelong angler from Mitchell South Dakota.   He's also my dad.  He is one of those dads who goes above and beyond to make sure everyone has a good experience.  You know, the kind of dad who would create/host outdoor events, make trophies, take you out of school early to go hunting fishing and sometimes (albeit unknowingly) embarrass you in front of a crowd.  Another thing he has always been good at is telling stories. Fish Stories is about family, friends, and the anglers we care about. At the end of the day, that’s a lot of what fishing is to my dad.  Music (In order of Appearance): Puzzle Pieces - Lee Rosevere RSPN - Blank and Klatt  Siesta - Jahzzar Cold Funk - Funkorama by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license ( Source: Artist: "Fargo" - Riot
