Educational and interesting free exhibit on the fish hatchery and fishing industry in Alaska. Self guided tour, indoors and out; we were there about 45 minutes. Worth the visit!

Avoid I81. VDOT should have to drive this horrific corridor everyday. Forget scenery/ all you have is truck traffic that imperils your life. Delays , accidents happen daily. Stay on Route 11 or any other route except this one.

Although there was no tour- we were able to get out and watch the salmon. There were hundreds of them and once or twice they were trying to fly up the rapids.

Provides free information about Alaska fishing and hunting opportunities. Game and Fish biologists can provide department documented unbiased information. Fish and wildlife mounts on view in the building.
