ASK GAME & FISH

A fish hatchery is one of the only places people can get an up-close view at fish in all stages of their life - and we welcome visitors year round. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department operates ten hatcheries and rearing stations across the state, open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., daily. 

To plan your visit, driving directions are available on the Game and Fish website. The locations include:
  • Auburn - Auburn Fish Hatchery
  • Boulder - Boulder Fish Rearing Station
  • Clark - Clark's Fork Fish Hatchery
  • Casper - Dan Speas Fish Hatchery
  • Daniel - Daniel Fish Hatchery
  • Dubois- Dubois Fish Hatchery
  • Story - Story Fish Hatchery
  • Ten Sleep- Ten Sleep Fish Hatchery
  • Lovell - Tillett Springs Fish Rearing Station
  • Ten Sleep - Wigwam Fish Rearing Station
Youth who visit four or more hatcheries and submit photos of themselves with the hatchery sign are eligible to complete the Hatchery Hop--part of the Youth Fishing Challenge. Those who submit an approved application will earn a collectable certificate from Game and Fish. More details on the Youth Fishing Challenge are available online.

Last year, nearly 36,000 people visited a Game and Fish hatchery.
