Volunteer Judy was very informative!! Definitely worth a quick stop! Watched them feed, great illustrations and descriptions of the whole conservation process inside the hatchery. Didn't get a fishing license but they have poles you can use in their pond for FREE. Would be a great stop for kids!
An oft-overlooked unique activity close to Jackson. We visited with our kids on a summer day, and there were only a few other people. The kids were really interested in the tanks with the fingerlings, and the tour guide (a volunteer) knew a lot about the life cycle of the trout. They have a small cabin with some small exhibits the kids can touch, and they had fishing poles to borrow. The staff biologists were very friendly and offered to find stickers for our kids. A worthy use of an hour.
