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... 更多
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... 更多
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... 更多
They have 10 foot long Sturgeon....what more can I say?!? HUGE FISH. They have many hatching tanks and you can feed the rainbow trout is is fun for all ages. The landscape is peaceful and inviting as you walk from tank to tank. Great stop!
Nice stop to take a short walk to see the hatchery. Don't miss Herman the Sturgeon! You can take a self-guided tour. There are nice clean restrooms and a gift shop, so this makes a great rest stop on your way along the Columbia River.
We arrived on a raining day and the only ones there. It was self guiding so we just walked around and enjoyed the beautiful landscaping. The hatchery had a nice video playing that explained everything about the hatchery. Fed the Rainbow Trout in the ponds around the property. Saw some Salmon jumping at the locks getting ready for release.
I have systematically avoided visiting this place each time we have been in the Gorge. I just thought it would not be anything I was interested in---and that it would smell all fishy. I was so wrong! I gave in this time and truly ended up enjoying myself! First, it's free. Second, the grounds are lovely, well kept, and there... 更多
We stopped here on the advice of the gate guard at the Bonneville Dam. There is a gift shop with many interesting items and some good bargains. We walked the grounds and found it interesting about the work going on to keep fish in our waters. We thought we spotted Herman in the Sturgeon pond, but the first fish we... 更多
