About the Hatchery
Rainbow trout are raised in 24 raceways and three rubber lined earthen ponds at the Chuck Gipp Decorah Fish Hatchery. Easy access to the raceways make this a popular stop to see fish of various sizes. A handful of feed purchased from dispensers brings fish swirling to the the surface.
The fish hatchery, located in Northeast Iowa, is open to the public 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset.
