Dubois Fish Hatchery

Dubois, Wyoming 82513
Situated at the base of the Whiskey Mountain Bighorn Sheep Winter Range, on the east slope of the Wind River Mountains, the State of Wyoming maintains the Dubois Fish Hatchery (sometimes known as Jakey's Fork Fish Hatchery). The fish rearing station was in use at this location in the 1930s, but was abandoned in 1937. The present hatchery replaced it in 1940. In 1944 it was further expanded to 44 cement raceways, providing outdoor homes for developing fish. Two natural springs supply more than a millions gallons of water a day to the hatchery.
Due to its location, the Dubois Hatchery serves an extremely important function by caring for eggs taken from the cutthroat spawning operation each spring at Lake of the Woods in the Union Pass area, 30 miles southwest of Dubois. This spawning operation furnishes a major portion of the cutthroat eggs for the entire State of Wyoming. The Dubois Hatchery also cares for rainbow, golden, brook, and brown trout.
