About The Fort Peck Multi-Species Fish Hatchery is owned by the Army Corps of Engineers but is staffed and operated by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Opened in the spring of 2006 this facility is capable of rearing a wide variety of warm and cool water fish including walleye, northern pike, Chinook salmon, and rainbow trout. The facility has 64 rearing tanks and incubation capacity for up to 125 million walleye eggs, 500,000 Chinook salmon eggs and 350,000 rainbow trout eggs. Forty outdoor ponds are used in the spring and summer for raising fingerling warm water fish. Eight concrete raceways are used for rearing spring released Chinook salmon and rainbow trout. This massive facility requires only three and half full time staff members. A computer monitors the complex system that regulates water flow and temperature enabling this hatchery to produce millions of fish for the state of Montana. Tours are by appointment only.
