Rainbow trout eggs are flown to Kodiak from the William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery in Anchorage.  Once the eggs are in Kodiak, they are transported to Pillar Creek Hatchery where they will incubate for several months.  After hatch, the young rainbows are reared by the PCH staff until they reach 1.0g.  At this point ADF&G Sport Fish personnel will transport and release the fry into several lakes (see picture at right) along the Kodiak road system.  This cooperative project provides excellent sport fishing opportunity for anglers seeking rainbow trout.
