Cold Water Hatcheries

Cold water hatcheries produce several trout species at facilities in western Maryland for stocking efforts throughout the State. Trout are cultured from eggs and grown in raceways and tanks. Stocked trout create "put and take" recreational fishing opportunities across Maryland and are used to create self-sustaining populations in targeted watersheds.
