Harrietta State Fish Hatchery

Harrietta State Fish Hatchery

Harrietta State Fish Hatchery is Michigan's oldest operating state hatchery and was first opened in 1901. It is a major rearing facility for rainbow (mostly for inland waters) and brown trout (both inland and Great Lakes waters). The facility also has an interpretative area providing information on how watersheds work and how a hatchery operates. Harrietta State Fish Hatchery's interpretive area has a self-guided outdoor trail system that offers many different areas of interest from some old hatchery construction to information on ecosystems and how they play a role in the environment. The indoor interpretative room provides information on the Big Manistee watershed, your connections to the Great Lakes, the operation of the hatchery including an indoor tank room viewing window, and an interactive computer with hands on learning opportunities concerning our watersheds and other aspects of fish culture. The hatchery is open at no charge to the public. Visitor hours are weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and weekends from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
