We stopped by here on our way to Multnomah Falls and I am so glad we did - first off the setting is wonderful and second, if you have any interest in the rich legacy of fishing in the region, you need to stop here!

Feed some trout. Look at the lovely ponds, and see a prehistoric fish (or three) up close. No entry fee - take your time and enjoy!

We love going here any time we're in the Gorge. It's free and very entertaining. Feed the trout at the trout pond or stop by and watch the GIANT sturgeon from the underwater viewing room. Your kids will love it!

Excellent fish hatchery to visit with kids,they have food you can feed the fish (will need quarters for machines), picnic tables and a wonderful little gift store with coffee and snacks. They keep the grounds up well, and is very clean every time we have gone. They also have Herman the large sturgeon at the viewing area. Just a nice... More

I wanted to see Herman the Sturgeon and see what else Bonneville Fish Hatchery had to offer. So when happened to be in Cascade locks this was the time to go and check this place out. It was easy to get to. Just drove on I-84 to exit 40 and took the way to Bonneville Dam/Fish hatchery. And drove to... More

The Fish Hatchery at Bonneville Dam (Cascade Locks, Oregon) is a favorite stopping point with the kids as we drive the I-84 highway along the Columbia River Gorge. It is always amazing to feed the trout with the little pellets, then view the sturgeon pond and see those prehistoric water monsters make their way slowly past the underwater viewing window....

I honestly thought this would be ho-hum but it's actually a pretty good setup with lots of fish. Seeing the huge sturgeon was impressive but the highlight is going back to the salmon section and watching the salmon jumping out of the water. Those fish are determined!

Traveling east out of Portland with my friends on a holiday weekend, we had planned to picnic at the falls. But after taking the road to the falls and finding it slow and highly congested with foot and motor traffic we were greatly relieved to find oursleves back on the highway, but now even more hungry and in need of...

Whenever friends are visiting from out of town I always take them to the Bonneville Fish Hatchery. I bring a few quarters for the fish food and we walk around and feed the Trout, Salmon and the Sturgeon. My favorite is the Sturgeon exhibit where a few really large and very old Sturgeon live. Lots of educational exhibits and things... More
