We have taken our small grandkids and adult friends to the hatchery. The museum is interesting to all and everyone has fun feeding the fish from small to large. A bonus is the beautiful view of the damn especially when the flood gates are open!

We didn't plan a trip to the fish hatchery,but just kind of got there by accident, so glad we went. Nice little informative place, and everyone enjoyed watching the fish and feeding them. We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely go back againg.

The fish come to the surface as you approach the tanks. You can buy food and watch the trout boil as you feed them. A side benefit is the spectacular view of... More
