Amazing water views right at the bridge as you enter. Make sure to go on bridge and just be amazed. No charge for hatchery. Easy walk around small hatching lake, 1/2 mile. Or just go to the main feeding area. Good to picnic here. Nice to ride your bike hear from general store or a camp site.

We took a hike along the Metolius and ended up here at the fish hatchery. What a little slice of heaven. This place is peaceful and beautiful. A great place to take the kids. Lots of fish to feed In the pond and geese galore. It is also a great destination for a picnic lunch.

I live in Bend this is one of my favorite day trips to make. Wizard Falls has a fish hatchery and a wonderful hiking trail and they are also dog friendly! You can feed the fish for a quarter, spend some time strolling around a beautifully maintained man made pond (that's also full of some huge rainbow trout) and then... More

Took my grand daughter there on a hot spring day. She is 8 and loved it. The picnic area is beautiful and shady. She loved seeing the different stages of the fish and enjoyed feeding them.

Our main objective was to go hiking on Metolius River, and the trailheads happen to start just outside the fish hatchery. Since we were already there, we decided to check it out. It is a great place for families - informational signs posted everywhere about the types of fish they raise there, along with the ecological concerns about stocking fish,... More

It's a great compound with many 'ponds' to see the different kinds of fish; chinook, trout, etc. Very clean and well taken care of. There is also a big pond at the far end where "escapees" have gathered. Great way to see how the fishery handles the spawning, rearing and planting of raised fish.

Looking for a quiet spot to visit on a hot afternoon? Wizard Falls on the Metolius River would be the place. Of course the fish are interesting to watch and feed. Grounds are a beautiful park with lawns, picnic tables and a few benches. If you are lucky you will see a bald eagle or osprey snatch a fish from... More

We spent an hour or so wandering around the hatchery and it was mildly interesting. There are no tours but there are signs that explain things well. There are machines that dispense fish food for a quarter for the kids of all ages who want to feed the fish.
