It is a great hatchery half a hour away from Sacramento, much more accessible than all other hatchery that I know. It is at its best when Salmon come back through the fish ladder to spawn (probably sometime around Sept ?). For other seasons, you can watch the video about salmon and steelhead processing in this site. There are also... 更多
This is good low cost fun for the whole family. You can feed the salmon and the trout. Salmon are pretty small but the trout are bigger so kids love to see both. There's lots of information available on the inside and a small pay area with a hollow fish to climb in. Weve made several trips and they have... 更多
We had a morning to kill some time before the aquatic center opened so thought we'd come here to check it out. We didn't have any expectations and just thought the kids could learn something from visiting. The visitor's center is interesting and well laid out to learn about how the spawning of salmon and trout has changed over the... 更多
You get more than you pay for here--especially is you go at the right time of year. Check their website for calendar details and call ahead to be certain of current activities, but any time of year, it's an interesting, well-planned site -free to all. All my kids loved going when young. The best part is buying fish food for... 更多
I love this place. In the fall the salmon make their way up the river to this location. Watching the salmon go up the ladder to the hatchery is an amazing experience. So interesting. I go every year. Right along the bike trail.
I love lake Natoma but it is also worthwhile to visit the hatchery and the dam. Both are interesting places and you can learn a lot about water and fisheries in California.

There was a couple of groups of kids on Field trips when we were there and the kids really enjoyed feeding the fish. There was an... 更多
Very nice facility if you are inclined to such things. I most definitely am. Be sure to call ahead if you want to view the seasonal harvesting of the eggs. We missed it, which was perfectly okay with my wife. And be very careful crossing the bike path as you come in.
We brought our 3 and 5 year old grandkids to see the fish at the Nimbus Dam Fish Hatchery. They enjoyed seeing and feeding the fish. In addition, there is a play area with a large fish. The visitor center is interesting as well
