We called in on the way to Sisters and it was well worth the diversion. There is enough information around to make it interesting and the setting is lovely. The entrance has a lovely river (Metolius) flowing under a bridge. Good loo stop and picnic...More

We visited this hatchery along the Metolious River 3 years ago and really wanted to visit in the fall for outdoor colors. We were not disappointed! It was in the low '60's, which was perfect in our minds. We had a picnic on the grounds...More

We saw the semi-rare river birds, "Dippers" in the river on the bridge leading to the hatchery. This is a gorgeous view of the river and should be visited on foot before you leave. The hatchery is extensive has a few interesting signs, no brochure...More

We hiked along the Meroltolus River and we went to the fish hatchery. There are all kinds of fish, in various stages of growth. They cut the fins of the hatchery raised fish, so they can tell them from the natives.

The GPS took us on a convoluted route to get here, but that was OK. It was a nice day for a drive. The kids enjoyed feeding the fish. Some of the fish food dispensers produced a big handful of pellets, while others were stingier....More

We thought we were out of luck feeding the fish since the change machine was broken. Fortunately, the friendly staff gave us some fish food to play with. It was a fun stop to see and feed the fish. Great place for kids.

Great time returning to the hatchery after skipping it the last few years. Don't forget to bring quarters for the food dispensers.

Great spot to look at all sizes of fish! There is a pond that you can walk around. A couple of little gum like machines distribute pellets to feed the fish for a quarter! We also saw an amazing amount of butterflies.

We saw plenty of dogs with people on the trail. I believe they have to be on a leash.
