The Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Story Fish Hatchery will remain closed to the public until July of 2010. The hatchery, which has been the most widely visited hatchery in the state, has been under construction and renovation since 2007.
Early snowstorms in October have prevented the contractor from completing the road and ground work needed to make the hatchery a safe place for tourists to visit. The facility will remain closed to the public until the grounds work is completed for the public to visit and
Game and Fish Information Specialist Warren Mischke said that The Game and Fish Department regrets the inconvenience and appreciates the public’s patience and understanding during these important construction projects. Mischke added, that once complete, the public will be very pleased with the end result.
