Kincaid State Fish Hatchery is located on more than 200 acres in western Pike County. This facility became operational under the direction of the Division of Conservation, a predecessor to the Division of Wildlife, in 1935. The hatchery has 15 ponds containing a total of 24 water acres. The facility also has six indoor raceways and four indoor rearing troughs. Water is supplied by a spring that can deliver 70-3,000 gallons per minute, depending on groundwater levels. This cold- water supply allows the hatchery to raise muskellunge and rainbow trout. Muskellunge were first raised at the hatchery in 1953 and production has grown steadily since. Muskellunge production starts in the spring, while trout production starts in the fall.
