Neat to be able to see the fish of all sizes. Was shocked they had fish even in the middle of winter. Saw the Eagle nest, but no Eagles today

The hatchery is a wonderful place to visit. Quiet, well maintained and quite lovely. Would definitely recommend and return if in the Decorah area.

Great picnic or short hiking area. You can view and feed the fish. The webcam eagles are nearby. Enjoy a walk. Free parking.

This is worth the stop for the educational benefit. It demonstrates how trout are humanely raised to be released into the wild. It gives you a chance to see trout up close if you are not a fisherperson. Parking is close and hatchery easily accessed.

Bring some quarters and watch the kids feed the fish. There were a number of people Eagle watching. Also a good spot to picnic. Overall, a good hours worth of family entertainment.
