We have been taking kids to the Hatchery for four generations now. Just a quiet place for the kids to walk around in the fresh air, feed the fish and check out all the water fowl that hang around at the end of the Hatchery...More

It’s a great place to feed the fish and see them jump around. Great place to stop by if your passing by the area. It’s very small so it’s a 15 minute thing or shorter.

This place is not only interesting, but it's just cool. You get to learn something about the fish, you might run into one of the more talkative workers who'll give you some interesting tidbits, and you must take a camera for the fish and the...More

I love seeing the fish, and enjoy feeding them. It is very peaceful and family oriented. Restrooms are available and clean. Make sure you wash your hands before and after feeding the fish.

This is quite a unique place. There are rows of hatcheries filled with trout at various stages. You can feed them, and they watch and follow you, knowing you have food for them.

This is the first fish hatchery we've been to, so I didn't know what to expect! But it was such a treat and the perfect thing to do with a toddler! There are many long streams completely filled with fish. As we walked along one,...More

Located south off the 126, there is plenty of free parking. The ponds, which you can walk around, are full of trout in different stages of growth. If you bring your coins you can feed the fish. If you go to the far end you...More

Great place to take the kids to learn about how the various stages of fish is taken care of and then released out into the wild. Nice to be able to feed the fish. Very enjoyable place.

Spend an hour or so feeding these farm grown trout. There are different strains of trout growing there in different stages of their lives. For a dime you can buy fish food to feed the fish. Watch them boil when the food is presented. Bring...More
