The Hagerman National Fish Hatchery is located in the beautiful Thousand Springs area of the Snake River.

It began operations in 1933 and has since expanded to more than 60 rearing tanks and 78 raceways. The hatchery produces more than 1.5 million steelheads each year that are released into the Salmon River. Rainbow trout are also raised here. Hagerman National Fish Hatchery is an anadromous production hatchery located about 5.4 miles south of Hagerman, and about one mile upstream of the Hagerman State Fish Hatchery. The hatchery was initially constructed in 1932 as a rainbow trout hatchery. In 1979, it was converted to a steelhead trout mitigation hatchery under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Lower Snake
