Wyoming Hatchery Successful With Golden Trout

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — The Story Fish Hatchery completed successful spawning operations this past summer for one of Wyoming’s more unique species — the golden trout.

This was the third year of collecting golden trout eggs at the Story Hatchery in northern Wyoming.

The golden trout brood stock at Story is the only source of golden trout eggs in the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s hatchery system.

Golden trout in Wyoming are generally located in high-country alpine lakes where natural reproduction is limited.

The Wyoming eggs are extremely valuable nationally as other mountain west states like to stock golden trout as well, but they also have a hard time finding a reliable source of eggs.

After Wyoming’s needs are met, extra golden trout eggs are traded to other states for species not raised in Wyoming’s hatchery system such as walleye, bass and catfish.
