Fall Rainbow Trout Early Rearing - Dan Speas Fish Hatchery

The web camera is looking at Fall Rainbow Trout eggs. 

These eggs will hatch around November 20, 2019.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department started the in 1956.
 
The Fall Rainbow trout or sometimes called Hot Creek strain was developed back in 1933. This strain originated out of the McCloud River and one of its tributaries, George Crooks Creek, in Northern California. This fall spawning trout was first introduced into Wyoming via a shipment of 50,000 eggs from a private commercial hatchery out of Bothell, Washington to Ten Sleep Fish Hatchery. Since then this strain of trout has been used to manage fisheries and create quality recreational opportunities statewide.

Broodstock:
Wyoming Game and Fish Department maintains a captive broodstock of Fall Rainbow Trout at the Boulder Fish Hatchery, located south of Pinedale, Wyoming. The department maintains 2,300 brood fish, producing approximately 1,400,000 eggs annually. Eggs produced meet Wyoming’s needs and surplus eggs are provided to other state and federal facilities.

Rearing:
Fall Rainbow trout account for approximately 30% of the fish raised in Game and Fish hatcheries each year. Newly fertilized eggs are transferred to other statewide incubators for egg incubation and final shipment. 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, Fall Rainbows can grow up to one inch per month.

Fish Distribution:
Fall Rainbow trout are stocked throughout the state in spring, early summer, and in the fall. Fish are typically reared to between 3 and 9 inches before they are stocked. On average, just over 1.1 million Fall Rainbow trout are stocked annually.

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.
