A must see for your family, feed the fish, take in the views and enjoy the tranquility. Walk on the bridge and take a look at that gorgeous water. So much fun!

We visited this hatchery along the Metolious River 3 years ago and really wanted to visit in the fall for outdoor colors. We were not disappointed! It was in the low '60's, which was perfect in our minds. We had a picnic on the grounds...More

We saw the semi-rare river birds, "Dippers" in the river on the bridge leading to the hatchery. This is a gorgeous view of the river and should be visited on foot before you leave. The hatchery is extensive has a few interesting signs, no brochure...More

We hiked along the Meroltolus River and we went to the fish hatchery. There are all kinds of fish, in various stages of growth. They cut the fins of the hatchery raised fish, so they can tell them from the natives.

A very interesting experience. Having never been to a fish hatchery before, it was interesting. Great for families too!

We thought we were out of luck feeding the fish since the change machine was broken. Fortunately, the friendly staff gave us some fish food to play with. It was a fun stop to see and feed the fish. Great place for kids.

Great time returning to the hatchery after skipping it the last few years. Don't forget to bring quarters for the food dispensers.

Great spot to look at all sizes of fish! There is a pond that you can walk around. A couple of little gum like machines distribute pellets to feed the fish for a quarter! We also saw an amazing amount of butterflies.

Fish hatchery in a beautiful forest setting. It is fun to see all the big trout in the "escape" pond. Kids were feeding the fish and fly fisherman were catching (and releasing, I assume) some really nice fish. The Metolius River is nearby with lots...More

We saw plenty of dogs with people on the trail. I believe they have to be on a leash.
