  • This is the worst fish hatchery that I have ever been to. They make you pay for small handfulls of fish good which is given for free at the nearby hatchery. If you are going with kids you should just put them in swimsuits because the walls are practically nonexistent around the ponds. I should know because I watched someone fall in. There were no workers around or security to help the person who fell in. The ponds are absolutely filthy with a huge layer of fish poop in every runway. Not all of the ponds are open and none of them show what types of fish are in the ponds. This place is not worth the drive or time especially if you have children or people who are accident prone in your group. I recommend that you go to the mount Princeton hatchery instead for better service and a cleaner place to visit
  • volunteer was super nice- gave us each a giant "maxwell house" bucket of trout-chow. great place for the kids- for a 1 hour or less activity out of the house!
