My Husband I went to the Trout Fish Hatchery and it was very interesting to see the different sizes of Trout and read all about the different kinds and colors of Trout.

We got into Allentown late in the afternoon and just needed to find a place to kill an hour and get out of the hotel before dinner. You are able to buy a large bag of fish food for a dollar. Feeding the fish with the family was very nice.

It was a nice day and we were looking for a low key activity for 4 adults - we figured, why not? If you are looking for something involved, this is not the place to go.

Took my sister and her boyfriend here. The boyfriend is a big fan of fishing so he especially loved it. But we all enjoyed it. Wow, very impressive display of fish up close! Be sure to buy some of the fish food (use the dispenser that takes coins if it is after hours at the booth) and watch the feeding... More

It was fun to visit for an hour and see what they do there. Would I go back multiple times probably not. This would be an interesting activity to take little kids to see. I noticed a lot of families were there.

Nice spot to bring the entire family. Get up close to Pools of spawning fish. There is food for purchase. The Lehigh Valley Parkway (park) is attached by a walkway. Great area for a walk, biking, fishing, and picnic. No cost.
