Trash cans need to be chained & with lids to prevent animals getting into it & the wind knocking it over. Big beautiful sturgeon swimming in trash in the holding ponds. So disappointed to see STATE WMA in such unkempt conditions. We spent our visit...More

We were off the beaten path west of Twin Falls and chanced upon the national steelhead fish hatchery. It was a quite preserve with tons of fish and even the fabled White Strugeon. Grea place for outdoor education and even a picnic pending normal weather.

In mid-May no fish on the spot except two sturgeons and a few lost trouts swimming in a little basin for the pleasure of the visitors. Did not justify the trip. All fish had already been shipped to various rivers and hatcheries all over the...More

We drove around but never stopped. We never knew it was there. Actually went to the near-by National fish hatchery & walked around there. It's much bigger. Enjoyed the big sturgeons, viewing the trout & saw an owl
