“More fish for streams,” a headline in the Aspen Democrat Times read Sept. 6, 1922. “While in Denver Frank Bailey called on state game and fish commissioner and was promised 200,000 Rainbows and Natives for Snowmass creek. This will total a half million fry for Pitkin county this summer, having already received 200,000 for the Roaring Fork, 50,000 for Capitol creek and 50,000 for Sopris creek. The County will furnish the truck to haul the fish to Snowmass. Good work, Mr. Bailey, good work.”
