London Fish Hatchery

London State Fish Hatchery is located on over 80 acres in western Madison County, just west of London, Ohio. The facility was built in 1896 by the Ohio Fish  Commission, a predecessor to the Division of Wildlife and is the oldest of the six hatcheries. The hatchery has 33 ponds containing a total of 8 water acres. The facility also has one large outdoor raceway (a cement or earthen manmade canal with flowing water) and nine indoor rearing troughs. Water is supplied by several wells, which can deliver 2,000 gallons per minute. This cold- water supply and spring-fed ponds allow the hatchery to raise muskellunge, rainbow trout and brown trout. The hatchery is involved in fish production year-round and is the main production facility for brown trout. Muskellunge production starts in the spring, while trout production starts in the fall
