     Boulder Rearing Station was constructed in 1952.  The dirt ponds and raceways were upgraded to concrete in 1957.  Boulder is a rearing station, so fry between one and two inches long are transferred here from other state fish hatcheries.  The water supply comes from nearby springs at a temperature of 51 degrees F.  The present brood pond, spawning facility and lower raceways were completed in 1976.
     There is also a quarantine hatchery at the rearing station, which was constructed in 1992.  This quarantine hatchery hatches trout eggs from wild brood populations with unknown disease status.  The main species of fish raised at Boulder are rainbow and brown trout; however, cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon have also been a part of the production.  Most of the fish from Boulder are stocked in the Green River drainage and the southwest portion of the state.
     Trout fishing near the rearing station is available at the three ponds and along a one-mile stretch of the East Fork River.
