Rowdy Creek Fish Hatchery is in operation 365 days each year. Numerous school children visit the hatchery and several of the local schools have developed classroom incubation programs. This technology allows each student a hands-on opportunity to experience the wonder of nature. You will find fish at the hatchery during the entire year, during the spawning season the activity is greatly increased.
