Your fishin' is our mission - School Tours available at State Hatcheries
Since 1881, Colorado Parks & Wildlife fish hatcheries have been dedicated to improving the fish populations of our beautiful state. Today, CPW operates 19 hatcheries that breed, hatch, rear and stock over 90 million fish per year. Many of the fish produced are to enhance angling opportunities, while others serve a critical role in native species recovery efforts. Colorado fish hatcheries support our angling pastime, which annually contributes 1.9 billion dollars to our state's economy! Tours for groups and schools must be arranged in as far in advance as possible. This will help ensure that a sufficient supply of educational materials is on hand and that your group has a coordinated, enjoyable experience. (less)... Read more
