What you Will See at the Hatchery

By Season

With the continuing need for social distancing due to the risks imposed by the COVID-19 virus, the hatchery grounds are currently closed to the public. Regrettably, FISH does not know when regular visiting hours will resume — but we encourage you to learn about the hatchery and explore opportunities for online education here and on our Online Education pages.

Visitors can learn a wealth of information about the salmon life cycle and watershed stewardship with a host of interactive displays at the hatchery. Below is a sampling of the displays you will see at the hatchery:




The Issaquah Salmon Hatchery is a public facility where photos, videos and other media might be taken of individuals visiting the hatchery. At times FISH takes photos of visitors to use for publicity purposes (on our website, in pamphlets, etc.) If you do not wish to have your picture taken during a visit, please let the photographer know at the time of your visit.
