Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery

Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery Review

Here's a delightful place for a family picnic. Bring some change for the fish-food machines; the lakes are full of hefty, always-hungry breeder trout. Built in 1915, the hatchery was one of the first trout farms in California, and today it produces fish that stock lakes throughout the state.
