The only private fish hatchery in Montana is located on the Sun Ranch here in the Madison Valley. The hatchery, a joint project of the ranch and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, raises genetically pure Westslope cutthroat trout for stocking in appropriate streams, including some tributaries of the Madison. The Foundation is a partner in the project, and awards an annual $5000 grant to help fund hatchery operations. Foundation volunteers also assist with projects to restore our native trout so some of its historic range.
