Little Grassy Fish Hatchery Reviews
We went in the off season, but it was still educational. Super friendly lady informed us of all the hatchery events. Will be back in the Spring. Worth the stop. more »
What an amazing facility. We visited on a day that they happened to be closed because the water was so cold (last day of winter.) We were disappointed initially because we had wanted a tour, but quickly we felt welcomed by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic representative who gave us our own private mini tour which included a ton of interesting information - who knew fisheries were so fascinating! We all enjoyed her attention and willingness to share her passion for her work and this place. She gave us an impressive amount of information and encouraged us to return in the Spring when they take the eggs from the huge outdoor tanks and bring them indoors to grow. It was a great visit and tour, especially considering they were “closed”! Thanks to our wonderful guide, wish we would have gotten her name.
Short old woman that take care of the place is supposed to give all the info, an hour went by we saw only 7 pictures that she flips with t.v. control , instead took our time talking about herself and her personal life, we stop the conversation after the hour when she started to flirt with my father in law , missing half of the facilities with bored and sleepy children, my advice: learn the info. but do not compromise your time, this lady is like a machine gun unstoppable beware if you have an itinerary to cover that day. Good luck with the flirty lady almost 70.....!!!
