About Alchesay National Fish Hatchery

The Alchesay-Williams Creek National Fish Hatchery Complex consists of two hatcheries located nearly 25 miles apart on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation in the White Mountains of east-central Arizona. Visitors are always welcome at the hatcheries which have picnic areas at both facilities. Williams Creek also features a Nature Trail with benches and interpretive signs along the trail. Stop by our Visitors page for more information on tours of the facilities.

Alchesay NFH is located in the picturesque canyon of the North Fork of the White River on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation at an elevation of 5,400 feet above sea level. Williams Creek NFH is located in the beautiful White Mountains on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation at an elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level.

All fish cultured at the two hatcheries are stocked only into Tribal waters across Arizona and New Mexico as a Tribal Trust responsibility of the Fish & Wildlife Service to the sovereign Native American Nations.
