Default Re: Now this was a fun read; folks have a private trout hatchery in Montana.

I think that FWP (Fish Wildlife & Parks)sells hatchery raised trout to other states and the feds.. maybe the tribes too.. but I could be mixing up the fed hatcheries with the states

>>
FWP owns or operates ten hatcheries annually stock approximately 50 million fish annually into approximately 836 lakes and reservoirs and approximately 23 rivers or streams throughout Montana. FWPs hatcheries provide eggs and fish to support both sport fisheries and native fish restoration programs in Montana and neighboring states.

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks :: Hatcheries

And the Feds have hatcheries here too:

Welcome - Ennis National Fish Hatchery: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Last time I was there (3 or 5 years?), they had a display raceway of Albino, Blue and Orange rainbow trout - really cool
