“We go every year”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

From the road, it doesn't look like much. However, when you actually take time and tour the place, it's great. To see the various size of trout and how they feed and care for them is wonderful. It is amazing to see thousands and thousands of fish that you know will one day end up in rivers and streams around the area. The information center is good.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

The fish are huge. we had fun walking through the hatchery. The people were very informative and helpful, along with being friendly and nice which is a good combination. It was chilly weather so we didn't spend much time outside. The sites inside were fun to look at though along with the live animals.
