Brief DescriptionFish Hatchery
DescriptionThe Mt.Whitney Fish Hatchery is a great place for weddings, picnics, graduation ceremonies and family reunions. This unique building is home to the California State Fish-the rarely seen Golden Trout. The Hatchery was built in 1917 and at that time, was the largest and best equipped Hatchery in the State. The Hatchery is currently kept open and maintained by a volunteer group, Friends of Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery. The Friends have opened up a Wildlife Interpretive Center and a small gift shop. There is plenty of free parking and admission to the Hatchery is free (donations happily accepted!). The gift shop offers items for kids to adults at a reasonable cost. There is a trout pond in front of the building where kids can purchase trout food at low cost and feed the fish, and there are small trout inside the building. There is a small theatre within the Wildlife Interpretive Center which shows a video depicting the history of the Hatchery to present day.
Our volunteer staff is friendly, knowledgable and we love visitors!
