General Hatchery Information
The hatchery raises Morone hybrid bass and striped bass for stocking into public reservoirs. Largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish (shellcracker), and channel catfish are raised for stocking into private ponds. Some channel catfish are grown to catchable size for stocking into PFA's and for kids fishing events. Some largemouth bass are raised to a larger size for stocking into north Georgia reservoirs where survival of larval bass has been unsuccessful.
