  • Well, if you've seen one hatchery, you've seen them all, but it's still fun to poke around and look for the big ones. Makes you want to go fishing in the tank!

  • Enjoyable experience! The Walhalla State Fish Hatchery DNR rangers are available to answer questions for kids and adults alike. Go check out the fish fries![Yes, that's a real thing at the facility!] There is an educational "mini movie" explaining the life cycle of trout and how managing this species is a plus for South Carolina's ecosystems and economy. Visitors can also tour the facility and experience a live, working view of managing trout and if you're lucky, catch a special feeding time! Visitors may wish to bring their fishing pole to try their luck in the lovely, cool mountain stream nearby.[Sorry folks! No fishing in the growing pools! No challenge in that!] There are also picnic tables[a couple anyway] for a little afternoon outing and trails to explore.
  • Fun place to visit and see how fish farming works. Lots of Brown, Rainbow and Brook trout growing in the big pens. The nursery pens were full of youngsters. Nuce short or long walk from the parking lot to picnic area and river
