The Fish Hatchery at Powder Mills Park was established in 1933 as a cooperative effort between the U.S. Bureau of Fisheries and Monroe County. It was closed in mid-December 2002 due to County budget cuts and then re-opened in the Fall of 2003, when the Riedman Foundation entered into a partnership with the County to provide funding for staff, maintenance and operational support, as well as make capital improvements. The Fish Hatchery at Powder Mills Park is open all year long. This popular family destination provides a unique opportunity to view several varieties of fish in various stages of development. There are some 20,000 fish currently being raised at the hatchery. In addition to the trout, the hatchery raises Chinook salmon and Perch. Hatchery staff, on duty Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. most weekends, help provide an educational experience for visitors of all ages. For more information about the benefit derby and other activities taking place at the Fish Hatchery at Powder Mills Park, please call 585-586-1670.

  • This is one of my favorite parks to visit. There is a fish hatchery and you can buy food for a quarter and feed them. A good place to bring kids, there is a playground.
