Description : Hagerman National Fish Hatchery, located along the Snake River, about 30 miles west of Twin Falls, Idaho at a point three miles south and two miles east of Hagerman, Idaho, was authorized in 1930 and began operating in 1933. Historically, production consisted of rearing rainbow trout for stocking waters in Idaho, Oregon and Nevada. In the late 1970's, trout production was reduced and the steelhead program was initiated. The hatchery was remodeled and expanded from 1982 to 1984 as part of the Lower Snake River Compensation Program. The goal of the hatchery is to produce summer steelhead for the Snake River Basin. The hatchery also produces coho salmon for Cascade Reservoir and small numbers of steelhead
