GUNNISON, Colo. — The Colorado Division of Wildlife is seeking volunteers to lead visitor tours at the Roaring Judy Fish Hatchery in Almont this fall.
Tour groups include elementary and high school students, and other visitors and tourists. Guided tours will be offered from Sept. 15 through Nov. 1. Tour schedules will vary and will be conducted on weekdays and weekends.
The Roaring Judy is one of the most interesting hatcheries in Colorado. Besides raising a variety of trout species, the Roaring Judy is also the primary hatchery for the production of the state’s kokanee salmon. Visitors who tour the hatchery will learn about Colorado fisheries management, aquaculture and how hatcheries operate.
The hatchery is located at 14131 North Highway 135 (five miles north of Almont on Colorado Highway 135).
