Free guided tours of the Marblemount Fish Hatchery are offered 10 am to 3 pm every Saturday and Sunday from the first full weekend in December through the last full weekend in January each year. Join volunteers trained by the Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group to view salmon returning to the hatchery as well as the many bald eagles who join them. Learn about salmon and their life cycle, the operations of the hatchery, the habitat needs of salmon, and the prestigious visitor to our area, the bald eagle. In addition, chances are high to see part, if not all, of the salmon life cycle at the hatchery and to view other wildlife, such as the bald eagle.
If visitors can’t attend when guided tours are offered, the Marblemount Fish Hatchery is open to visitors 7 days a week and has a self-guided tour available.
Tour Details: The Marblemount Fish Hatchery is located at 8319 Fish Hatchery Road in Marblemount, WA. Plenty of parking is available onsite. Tours start inside the visitor’s center.
