Yellowstone River Trout Hatchery - Big Timber

In February of 1919, the President and Secretary of the Big Timber Rod and Gun Club met in Billings with members of the State Fish and Game Commission to bid for a rearing pond in Big Timber. The meeting aroused the interest of the commission members to such a degree that they offered to initiate a small hatchery if clear title could be acquired to the land. The Big Timber Rod and Gun Club raised the money for purchase, acquired the clear title and donated the land to the State of Montana to be used for the Big Timber Fish Hatchery. The name of the hatchery has been changed to the Yellowstone River Trout Hatchery and is now the home of the Yellowstone Cutthroat broodstock.
