San Joaquin Hatchery

A major producer of trout and inland salmon, San Joaquin Hatchery is also a great place to visit. Along the San Joaquin River, just downstream of the Friant dam, San Joaquin Hatchery has picnic grounds among the garden of California native vegetation. Come take a photo with the enormous wood-carved rainbow trout! Check dates for the Annual Trout Fest!
