Come watch newly hatched fish (fry and fingerlings), learn about fish reproduction and stocking, and maybe try your luck in a nearby creek! This fish hatchery was built in 1946 and supplies fish stock to southeast Idaho lakes, rivers, and streams. The primary fish produced in the hatchery’s 16 vats and raceways is rainbow trout. Other species include cutthroat trout, lake trout, and splake. The area includes a shaded picnic area and access to fishing on Whiskey Creek, which gets stocked throughout the fishing season with rainbow trout. Visitors are welcome, and if you call for an appointment, you can have a guided tour, though there is almost always someone around to answer questions.
