The original portion of Fall River Hatchery construction was completed in 1929. Many improvements have been made since original construction. In 1952 the ten raceways were completed. The hatchery has a rainbow broodstock which supply rainbow trout to the Deschutes sub-basin. The hatchery produces legal sized rainbow trout, sub-legal rainbow trout, fingerling rainbow trout and provides rainbow, brook and cutthroat trout fingerling for air stocking programs throughout the state. The facility traps and spawns brown trout and rainbow trout at two remote sites.
