BOBBY N. SETZER STATE FISH HATCHERY   

The Bobby N. Setzer State Fish Hatchery is located in the Pisgah National Forest near Brevard. The facility consists of 16 indoor rearing tanks, where trout are kept until they are "fingerlings" (about three inches long), and 54 outdoor raceways, where the fish are grown until they are "catchable" size (at least 10 inches long). The water supply for the hatchery comes from surface water diversions on Davidson River and Grogan Creek, which supply about 3,500 gallons per minute of cold mountain water year-round. The Bobby N. Setzer Hatchery produces both fingerling- and catchable-trout for the Wildlife Resources Commission’s hatchery-supported trout waters program.

The Hatchery maintains its own strains of brook, brown and rainbow trout broodstock.
