The Black Hills National Forest is a popular destination for fishing. Several species of fish, including brown, brook, and rainbow trout, as well as northerns, perch, and crappies can be caught in the Black Hills. While the Forest Service does not sell fishing licenses, a license is required to fish in both South Dakota and Wyoming. The state game departments and local retailers sell licenses. An annual Fishing Handbook lists fishing regulations. For more information, visit the website for the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks at http://gfp.sd.gov/licenses/general-hunt-fish/ or the website for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department at https://wgfd.wyo.gov/web2011/home.aspx
