Renovated Hatchery Benefits Brook Trout and Anglers

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

The Elliot Acres Fish Hatchery was closed in the early 1960s because of limited financial resources and fell into a state of disrepair. Thanks to help from Wildlife Forever, the trout hatchery was renovated to raise brook trout for stocking in area streams and lakes. This is an excellent example of how local citizens can team up with national conservation groups to improve their local resources, said Doug Grann, President & CEO of Wildlife Forever. Renovation of this hatchery is producing a noticeable difference of the quality of trout fishing in the area.
