William H. Donham State Fish Hatchery
Free tours and information on state-of–the-art fish management. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service built the Corning Federal Fish Hatchery in 1938. The shallow water table and gumbo clay soils make this area an ideal location for a fish hatchery. It sits on 140 acres of land, 40 acres of which hold ponds for fish production. Its water comes from wells, and it produces largemouth bass, striped bass, hybrid striped bass, bluegill sunfish, redear sunfish, black crappie, channel catfish, walleye, sauger (Stizostedion canadense), and saugeye (Stizostedion vitreum X Stizostedion canadense).
