The Fort Peck Hatchery is owned by the Army Corps of Engineers but staffed and operated by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. Opened in the spring of 2006, this facility is capable of rearing a wide variety of warm and cool water fish including walleye, northern pike, chinook salmon, and rainbow trout. The facility has 64 rearing tanks and incubation capacity for up to 125 million walleye eggs and 500,000 chinook salmon eggs. Forty outdoor ponds are used in the spring and summer for raising fingerling warmwater fish, and 8 concrete raceways are used for rearing fall released chinook salmon. With a staff of only four, this hatchery is capable of producing millions of fish for the state of Montana.
