Guy, how many waters and fish do the Game and Fish hatcheries and rearing stations stock each year in Wyoming? The Game and Fish hatcheries and rearing stations are very busy! On average, we stock over 450 waters with nearly 5 million fish each year. Additionally, we conduct trades with other states’ fish and wildlife agencies. Through trades, we are able to obtain and stock several million cool and warm water fish each year. For example, we’ll trade some Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout -a Story Hatchery specialty- for Catfish.
There are ten hatcheries and rearing stations across the state--and they all take visitors. Stop by one of these locations and see first-hand how we raise and stock fish for anglers. https://wgfd.wyo.gov/Fishing-and-Boating/Fish-Hatchery-Information
