What to know

This hatchery was built in 1938 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as the Corning Federal Fish Hatchery.  Later it was acquired by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and has been recently renovated, including state-of-the-art fish management equipment.  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, including 40 acres of 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 and saugeye.  Tours of the facility can be arranged by calling the main hatchery telephone number.
