Not your average fish hatchery! Feed the fish (more fun than you think at first) we saw Steller's Jays, Belted Kingfishers, dragonflys, small birds too fast for me to identify, lots of information, beautiful location. There is a trail to the falls, but we didn't go there this time, but we will go back.

Wanna see BIG fish? This is worth the trip. Special pond with a bunch of 5-10 lb. trout. Educational about how the hatchery provides world class fishing on the Metolius River in Central Oregon.

Worth a trip, and has great river trails. Lots to see there, and the employees are super helpful. There are plenty of exhibits and fish for the kids to see.

When in the area, always stop here to walk the grounds and feed the fish. Nice clean bathrooms as well. Beautiful views of the Metolius River from the bridge leading to the hatchery. Large holding pond at the back of the hatchery with 15-24 inch rainbow trout that can be fed by purchasing feed from many available dispensers. Great fun... More

Wizard Falls is a lovely place to visit anytime but especially on a hot day. The fish always enjoy the food to be purchased at the pond. Great fun to watch them make a dash for it! The path around the pond gives a different perspective. Fortunate visitors might see a bald eagle or osprey in a snag waiting for... More

WE rode bikes here from Camp Sherman Store. A good 5 miles up and then 5 miles back. NOt hard but some hills. Hatchery was very interesting and kids can feed the fish. The falls were the coolest thing: bright blue waters ! great place for a picnic, and nice to see the history of it all...

Feed the fish in the tanks and the nearby holding lake. Clean, tidy, quiet and beautiful. Very fun for the little ones too.

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.
