More than a hatchery

DeWitt Clinton Booth, or “D.C.” as he insisted on?being called, came to South Dakota in 1899 to become the youngest hatchery superintendent in the country. 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. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Archives online to learn more about planning your next visit or to contribute to their very important work.    Music (in order of appearance):  "Featherlight" - Lee Rosevere "Water in the creek (Instrumental Version)" - Josh Woodward "Going Home" - Lee Rosevere
