Wallowa began operation in 1920 as a resident trout hatchery. In 1985, the hatchery was renovated as part of the Lower Snake River Compensation Program (LSRCP)—a program to mitigate for spring chinook and summer steelhead losses caused by the four federal dams constructed on the lower Snake River. It is used for adult collection, spawning, acclimation and release of summer steelhead.

Best time to visit: Spring and summer

Fish raised: Steelhead

What to see and do

The Wallowa Hatchery settling pond has been developed into a small wildlife area. A 1/4-mile trail leads from the hatchery to the pond. This is a good place to see waterfowl, especially nesting geese, during spring.

Nearby: Wallowa State Park offers a full-service recreation area including picnicking, camping, fishing and boating.
