  • Love the fish hatchery my kids always have so much fun seeing the fish. Never gets old
  • Great place to learn about the fish hatchery business and it's pivotal role in the development of the fishing industry and tourism since the late 1800s. The replica hatchery rail car is especially evocative . Free and the kids can feed the trout and watch them swimming from the huge glass observation windows.
