Learn about trout culture, fishing, and conservation at Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery. The trout-rearing facility includes a conservation center, as well as a network of paths for hiking, viewing wildlife, and access to fishing areas. The hatchery raises between 350,000 and 400,000 rainbow and brown trout each year. Examine the species on display in aquariums, catch an informative film in the auditorium, and learn more about the process of spawning and egg development in the conservation center. You can feed the fish by purchasing fish food from a machine, so come prepared with quarters. Guided tours are available daily during peak season.
