Eagle Lake Rainbow Trout Production - Dan Speas Fish Hatchery

Located in Production Building #3, in one of the large 36' production tanks. There are currently 63,000 Eagle Lake Rainbow trout in this tank. Feeding times are at 9:00, 10:30, 12:30, and 2:30 (MST).

The program has been in the state since 1962.
 
This spring spawning trout originated out of Eagle Lake, California. This stock has been a staple used by the Department to manage fisheries and generate quality recreational opportunities across the state for nearly 60 years.

Brood stock:
Wyoming Game and Fish Department maintains a captive broodstock of Eagle Lake rainbow trout at the Story Fish Hatchery, located in Story, Wyoming. A total of 3,000 adult brood fish produce approximately 2,700,000 eggs annually. Eggs produced meet Wyoming’s needs and surplus eggs are provided to other state and federal facilities.

Rearing:
Eagle Lake Rainbow trout account for approximately 30% of the fish raised in Game and Fish hatcheries each year. Eyed eggs are typically shipped out in April through June. As eggs develop, hatch and the fry swim-up, they are started on manufactured fish feed fed up to eight times a day. As the fish grow, the number of times fish are fed decreases. Depending on the water temperature and the feeding rate, Eagle Lake Rainbows can grow up to one inch per month.

Fish Distribution:
Eagle Lake rainbow trout are stocked throughout the state. Fish are typically reared to between 3 and 9 inches before they are stocked. On average, just over one million Eagle Lake Rainbow trout are stocked annually.

Kokanee Early Rearing - Dan Speas Fish Hatchery

Kokanee salmon are one of the most popular game fish in the state of Wyoming.  Anglers come from all over the nation to take advantage of the amazing kokanee fisheries that exist in the state.  The Wyoming Game and Fish Department currently stocks over 1.2 million kokanee each year in many lakes and reservoirs across the state.

Kokanee salmon are closely related to the ocean going sockeye salmon.  Unlike sockeye, kokanee don’t migrate to and from the ocean; instead spending most of their life in a lake or reservoir.  Upon reaching maturity, adult kokanee run up streams or find areas along the sandy, gravely shores of a lake or reservoir to spawn.  Unfortunately wild spawning does not support all of the recreational fisheries so we need to stock kokanee.

Until last fall, the Department relied on wild spawning operations or importations from other states to provide the eggs needed to stock Wyoming’s waters.  However, the Department recently developed a captive kokanee broodstock at the Tillett Rearing Station which should provide a steady supply of disease-free eggs.  The eggs are reared at several Department hatcheries before being stocked as fingerlings.
