Renovation completed at MDC’s Roaring River Hatchery

Updates will increase production & improve health of fish at this popular angling site

Watching small rainbow trout swim in the raceways of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Roaring River Hatchery gives Paul Spurgeon as much joy these days as seeing large lunkers being reeled out of the nearby trout park.

Spurgeon, the manager of MDC’s hatchery at Roaring River State Park in Cassville, has seen those raceways dry and devoid of fish for more than two years due to a $1.9 million renovation project at the hatchery. 

The completion of what essentially was a modernization of the facility will mean increased trout production and healthier fish.
