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.
