“Pond open 8-4:30”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

Correction to my previous post. The Lake Trout Pond area where the fish may be fed is open 8am to 4:30pm. Pond gate closes promptly at 4:30pm. Sorry for the confusion.

“Fishy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2012

The process of growing "stocker" fish is an amazing process to see. And the kids will love it.

“Open 8am-5pm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2011

Story hatchery has recently been upgraded to better meet the needs of the five brood stocks of fish housed there and to address whirling disease issues. While the new building is closed to the public as per the state fire marshall, there is still much to see. New informational signs have been created and the visitor center is scheduled to reopen with an all new design in winter of 2011.
Please remember that bread is NOT allowed to be fed, feed only food from the feed machines (takes quarters, there is no change machine) and feed only to the fish in the lake trout pond as all the other fish are too small for that size food. Because the hatchery is whirling disease suspect, please do not allow children to wade or put their feet into the water as you may carry the disease to other waters. Whirling disease does not harm humans.
Hours are 8am-5pm every day of the year. Lake trout pond is open 8am-5pm. Gate closes promptly at 5pm so please allow plenty of time beforehand to see everything. No admission fee but bring quarters for feed machines if desired.

“Great site to visit with the kids, nice setting, cool waters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

We really enjoyed going to the Fish Hatchery. Usually it is quite deserted, so you have the place to yourself. During the summer a great way to cool off is to travel to Story and feed the fish. Our kids loved it. They got to feed the fish which was a big hit.

The site has a great set of posters to walk you through the fish life cycle. It is a great nature stop. And my kids at an early age (under 10) enjoyed trying to touch the fish as they tossed the food. Great fun for the whole family. Low key and relaxing. And educational.
