The hatchery annually distributed 324,000 catchable-size rainbow trout and an additional 460,000 fingerlings to meet mitigation goals. These fish provided 160,000 anglers with an opportunity to land a trout. Approximately 38,000 visitors tour the hatchery annually. Major fishing events are held annually to promote recreational fishing and to introduce the public to the Fish and Wildlife Service and its mission. The primary species raised at this facility is rainbow trout.
The hatchery provides environmental education and public outreach opportunities to visitors, school groups, and various other organizations. The environmental education program is designed to promote conservation ethics and to develop a greater outreach for recreational fishing opportunities. The beautiful surroundings and natural environment draw a lot of visitors to the hatchery. A visitor kiosk and an opportunity to view the fish in various stages of production prove to be a great attraction. Rock Creek, which runs through hatchery property, offers a great trout fishing opportunity. U.S. Forest Service campgrounds are located both above and below the hatchery.
