Anyone ever hunt the Chattahoochee forest around the hatchery? Any good? 
Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery are you open today/tmrw for guests to come fish? Our littles would love to check it out! The attached phone number isn't being answered and we wanted to be sure before driving an hour! Thank you!
Have you started stocking Rock Creek yet?
Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery produces about one million rainbow trout each year. These fish are stocked into tailwaters, streams and lakes of Northern Georgia in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. https://www.fws.gov/southeast/chattahoochee-forest/
FWS Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery representing in Georgia! Entrusting our youth with the well-being of another living organism and watching them rise to the challenge provides a great sense of satisfaction. Cheers to our new stewards!
Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery, and the Chattahoochee/Nantahala #692 Trout Unlimited Chapter teamed up to implement a “Trout in the Classroom” program for Union County Middle School seventh graders in Georgia. Now this is the way to sow the seeds of aquatic resource stewardship in our young people! http://ow.ly/trVc50yFiNf Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery Trout Unlimited
The Chattahoochee Forest National Fish Hatchery is about 45 minutes north of Barefoot Hills. They deposit trout into creeks and rivers throughout North Georgia. Our GM, Justin, enjoys catch and release fishing and has caught some big ones in the stream running next to the hatchery!
I heard there was a small trout pond kids could learn to fish in. Is that still there?
Some great press!
Humans consuming water produced by the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests show higher incidence of a type of cancer (Prostate, Thyroid, Breast, Ovary/Uterine, Pancreas, that are attributed to endocrine disruptive chemicals. Are there any indication that fish and wildlife are also impacted?

🎉🎉150 years ago today, Congress officially authorized the National Fish Hatchery System! Created to help raise fish for food, today 70 operating hatcheries are committed to improving recreational fishing, recovering and restoring federally listed endangered species, and fulfilling tribal partnerships and trust responsibilities. As part of the nation's first conservation program, we are proud to celebrate 150 years of fish history! 🐟

D.C. Booth Historic NFH is 126 years old this year and houses the National Fish and Aquatic Conservation Archives - which has a lot of historical items from National Fish Hatcheries from all 50 states!

“What...is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?” -Bridge Keeper, Monty Python

Cliff swallows have been recorded reaching speeds of nearly 35 miles per hour! They average 4 flaps per second. When they aren’t speeding around you may see them on the ground sunbathing.

The artificial mountain bog on the hatchery is doing well. The bog turtles are out and moving. Feeding time is always fun to watch. The Swamp Pink plants and Purple Pitchers are flourishing in the bogs too.

Did you know?: the Erwin Fish Hatchery produces more trout eggs than any other federal hatchery in the U.S.! Established in 1897, the hatchery has been an incredible asset to East Tennessee and our nation for over 100 years.

Have been asked several questions about this since we posted it. According to GADNR regulations, the free fishing day just pertains to Georgia residents. All out of state anglers are required to have the appropriate licenses to fish. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

This sweet pup walked onto the hatchery today. She didn’t have a collar, so no name or number to call. If you know who she belongs to or if you’re missing her please come by the hatchery and pick her up.
