Wray Fish Hatchery was inaugurated in 1939. In 2012, the facility began using Longmont's Burch Lake to breed muskellunge which was a step in obtaining a tiger muskie population in Colorado. Before deposition, the females were crossed with northern pike.
Hatchery staff works to support the raising of broodstock black crappie, bluegill, and redear sunfish; other species, including walleye, saugeye, channel catfish, wiper, tiger muskie, and grass carp originate at other Colorado warm water lakes and hatcheries, or are traded from out-of-state.
