The fish hatchery is worth a quick stop. They do close at 3 PM. It takes about 30 minutes to look around. The signs by the parking area are informative. One area of the hatchery is no longer used and the buildings are deteriorating. The ponds were full of little fish. They workers were very friendly and did explain their activities. It is fun for all ages.

Great place to go with kids. If the ranger is there you will also get to feed the fish and learn about how CA repopulates trout in our local lakes.

If you are a trout fisherman or are simply curious, this Hatchery like other state run Trout Hatcheries is a great place to learn something 'new'.

Easy to follow, self guided, impressive to most people who enjoys the outdoors.

The various 'ponds' that show trout and different stages/sizes of growth and the ability to purchase food pellets to feed them are fun and exciting for kids (of all ages :-) )

A great diversion for the road weary and does not require a lot of time (nor money).

We stopped by with the kids and it was fun to see all the fish and explore for about 30 minutes. Nothing spectacular but we really enjoyed it.

A nice stop on the way to (or back from) Convict lake from Mammoth lakes. You can see fish at various growth stages nicely segregated as shown in the pictures. For all ages!

Real learning experience for all ages. You get to see the trout up close and in all stages of growth and how they raise them to release.

We did not go to the hatchery because we were told it's closed. We did continue down the road to see Hot Creek pools, which definitely is worth seeing.

We happened to be in Mammoth the day of the Hatchery's annual "open house." Kids got to fish for free and there were lots of opportunities for the kids, and adults, to learn how to fish. The kids loved it and both caught fish. There was a bit of a wait, but it was well worth it. This is probably a place that's more suitable for younger kids as opposed to teenagers.

Not knowing a darn thing about fishing, stocking or the like- it was interesting to learn about the hatchery. You can stroll among the vast tanks and learn how they are managed. You can even learn how to distinguish stock fish from natural ones while you are fishing.
