Update 7/15: The hatchery is closed until 8/15 for maintenance
The Feather River Hatchery raises Chinook salmon and steelhead along the Feather River, just below Lake Oroville. Visitors can watch migrating salmon from mid-September to mid-November or spawning steelhead from mid December through mid-February through an underwater viewing window. With fish present in the rearing ponds all year, visitors will enjoy their time at Feather River Hatchery any time of year.
The hatchery is open for self-guided tours all year long, but for the best experience, schedule a guided tour.
