Hatchery Development – Saratoga WY

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) worked to develop a fish hatchery near Saratoga, Wyoming.

“The 1935-1936 biennium was a heyday of improvements and construction. Over 100 ponds were constructed in the wild and CCC enrollees improved several streams and lakes and constructed fish rearing ponds throughout the National Forests in the state. This work included a series of nine fish rearing ponds in Carbon County near Saratoga.”

Casper Star-Tribune, June 30, 1936: “Work is progressing well … on the new retaining ponds at Saratoga. The work is being done by the CCC.”
