Riverdale, ND 58565



The Garrison Dam National Fish Hatchery (NFH) was established in 1957 on the banks of the Missouri River directly below Lake Sakakawea, North Dakota. The purpose for the hatchery was to provide fish for recreational fishing in new reservoirs created by federal water development projects. The hatchery has grown since it's early days and it's roles have expanded somewhat, but it continues to play an important role in managing fish populations in the upper midwest states. In addition to providing a role in managing fish population for North Dakota's salmon and trout fishery, it also fills stocking requests for walleye, northern pike, smallmount bass and a variety of other coolwater species in the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.
