KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) — Federal wildlife officials say a new water intake has been built and successfully tested for a fish hatchery in Lake Mohave.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (http://bit.ly/2bjlWC3 ) that U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials say the floating platform system will provide a reliable cold water source to restart rainbow trout production.

The Willow Beach National Fish Hatchery had been non-functional after being damaged in November 2013.

Arizona Game and Fish Department shared the hatchery cost with the federal agency. Department Director Larry Voyles says the fix is a "huge win" for anglers in Arizona.
