WILD ROSE STATE FISH HATCHERY BLOOMS IN NEW VIDEO AND AUDIO SLIDESHOW

June 28, 2011

Renovated facilities, first walleye onsite captured

WILD ROSE - Wisconsin anglers can tour Wild Rose Fish Hatchery's recently renovated facilities -- and get a look at its newest residents -- without leaving the comfort of their home.

A new video, Wild Rose Fish Hatchery, shows how the century-old hatchery grounds have been restored and new, award-winning, state of the art facilities and a visitors center have been added on the site.

Wild Rose produces more than 2 million trout and salmon for stocking in Lake Michigan, and helps meet stocking needs statewide for lake sturgeon, walleye and northern pike. While northern pike and sturgeon were both raised at the renovated facilities last spring and summer, this is the first group of walleye produced.
