Randolph New York State Fish Hatchery

Share this

The Randolph Fish Hatchery is one of twelve New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) fish hatcheries and is a primary broodstock facility which produces 5-6 million brook, brown and rainbow trout eggs each year. (Broodstock are adult fish kept to provide eggs.) Each fall, hatchery fish culturists strip, fertilize and incubate eggs, then ship millions to other NYSDEC hatcheries.

Randolph keeps many of the eggs they produce and raise trout to stock local waters. Annual production totals almost 100,000 pounds of fish. Fingerlings, young fish measuring 3-5 inches long, are generally stocked in the fall. Older fish, six-nine inches long, are called yearlings and are stocked in the spring. 

The Randolph Fish Hatchery is open to the public everyday, year-round, from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m
