Ouray National Fish Hatchery is just one of the many field stations of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service whose mission is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.
Ouray National Fish Hatchery is open to the public; however some areas are restricted (the recirculation hatchery and the Isolation Facilities) except for guided tours. Larger groups are encouraged to call ahead for a guided tour.
