This report is a compilation of records pertaining to the distribution and management of fish in Nebraska. It was prepared to serve as both a technical and nontechnical history of the state's fisheries resource and past fisheries work. It can be used in planning future fisheries administration and management as well as providing interesting reading for many fishermen.

The information was collected by a search of the available literature including records of the Nebraska Game, Forestation and Parks Commission and by interviews with individuals. Included in the report are historical notes of early fish sightings, information on the native and current distribution of fish, fish stocking, and a brief history of fishery administration and regulation in the state.
