The Mettiki Hatchery purchases
25,000 trout eggs every December and June for their appropriate production
cycle. From these hatches, Mettiki Hatchery personnel produce and stock
approximately 20,000 adult rainbow trout during the spring “Put and Take”
stocking season, as well as 15,000 adult rainbow trout during the fall stocking
program. Approximately 15,000 surplus fingerling are stocked as
“Put and Grow” production into designated streams in western Maryland. An
additional 10% of the trout are cultured to trophy size to provide anglers the
opportunity to catch some spectacular fish.
