Visit a Hatchery

Due to COVID-19, visitation at the state hatcheries has been suspended until further notice.

Vermont’s fish hatcheries are a great place to visit to see fish and learn about the different species raised for stocking statewide.

Our fish culture stations produces more than 1.5 million fish annually for distribution, or stocking, to Vermont’s lakes and streams. Stocking fish helps to restore fish populations and enhances angling opportunities.
