Nice walk and educational. Be sure to see the Indian museum, located on the same property but on the other side of the stream.

We bring our 2 1/2 year old twin grandsons to the hatchery about every other month. It’s a nice relaxing place to get close up with the fish. They love it.

It's not that kind of fish hatchery. It's just for looking. It's where they raise fish to stock rivers and creeks.

The parking lot close to the fish is fine for cars but I would not bring a bus in there, not enough turning radius. I'd allow 45 mins there to see the fish and walk around a little bit.

Only fish food. There is no fishing here, only breeding.
