“a troutin' good time!”

Fish and Wildlife Service at which time it was given to the state of via a land trade. Since 1976 it has functioned as Iowa’s trout brood stock station where trout are spawned, incubated and hatched annually to produce over 600,000 fish for stocking in Iowa waters. The hatchery is staffed with four permanent personnel: Dave Marolf (Biologist & Manager) and three technicians: Ken Linderwell, Tom Rohde and Randy Mack.
