Ranier Fish Hatchery

Ranier, Minnesota 56649, United States

Created By: Koochiching County Historical Society


One of the more important industries in Ranier was commercial fishing. Numerous families and other individuals were involved in this enterprise. For many years, the commercial fishermen operated a fish hatchery to restock the lake to ensure a continuous supply of fish. Management of the hatchery was eventually given to the Minnesota Department of Conservation who operated it until about 1944. The hatchery was located in what is now Main Street Park.
