Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education

Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education Review

This fish hatchery in Pisgah National Forest produces more than 400,000 brown, rainbow, and native brook trout each year for release in local streams. You can see the fish up close in tanks called raceways and even feed them (approved trout feed is sold for a quarter). There's also a small visitor center with information about the life cycle of trout and an educational nature trail. The Davidson River, which runs by the hatchery, is popular for fly fishing.
