FWP owns or operates ten hatcheries annually stock approximately 50 million fish annually into approximately 836 lakes and reservoirs and approximately 23 rivers or streams throughout Montana. FWP’s hatcheries provide eggs and fish to support both sport fisheries and native fish restoration programs in Montana and neighboring states.

The annual statewide production is 45 million warmwater and 8.4 million coldwater fish. Since most of the warmwater fish are stocked as fry, the total warmwater production amounts to less than 11,000 pounds of fish, while the annual production of coldwater species typically exceeds 160,000 pounds.

All FWP hatcheries are open year-round for public visitation.
