  • It was a freezing day and there was no one around but we still loved the fish hatchery. See several varities of trout from minnow size to full grown and you can freed them. It was too late in the seas...  more »

  • At first thought, visiting a fish hatchery doesn't seem that appealing. The Decorah Fish Hatchery, however, will surprise you. Visit the hatchery and see the different trouts, see the stream where they are released, walk along a scenic creek, and stop by to see the Decorah bald eagles. This is a great place to take the family for a 1-2 hour excursion.
  • You can feed the fish up close and personal. The tanks are elevated and it's a wonderful experience for all ages.
  • Always a cool stop Bald Eagles with Chicks Crazy cold during winter - Duh Beautiful in warmer months - a must see
  • Awesome trout fishing!! This place has beautiful scenery and bike trails..bring your camera for pics of the eagles nest!!
  • It's peaceful life, beautiful scenery. Great place for a picnic. Also good place to catch some trout.
