Salt Lake City, UT--Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) officials have confirmed whirling disease in trout from the state's Mammoth Creek State Fish Hatchery. As soon as DWR officials learned the hatchery fish might be infected with whirling disease parasites, stocking of Mammoth Creek fish was halted and the hatchery temporarily closed. Officials say it's unclear how the parasites entered the hatchery. An emergency response team has been formed to deal with the situation.
Last summer it was closed and still to this date remains closed. The DWR is currently cleaning the runs and drilling wells for the runs. I think they should make it a state of the art facility. The closest hatchery is in Loa some 75 miles north.
