Dress for the weather - wear comfortable shoes. I wouldn't recommend this for kids under 4 as there is simply too much learning - albeit fun learning... to hold really young kids attention. My kids are 5 and 8 and my 5 year old almost lost interest... it was a stretch for him. My 8 year old had an amazing time.

What a great deal! Includes a tour of the hatchery which is like a museum. My son says it's like a "small Vancouver Aquarium." Also saw an informative Power Point Presentation in the theatre about our BC Hatcheries native and invasive fish and how they get the fish into the lakes. Then we went out to the pond to fish. The day was very rainy and we caught no fish but it was a great experience.

We spent a wonderful afternoon discovering so much about fishing in BC by a knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and very patient leader. The pace was perfect for children. Lots of movement and hands on activities. Finally, the fishing in the hatchery ponds was definitely a highlight. Even though not everyone caught a fish, everyone was able to share in the excitement with those who did. Truly a nice program, and now my kids are excited for their next fishing expedition.

This was a wonderful, educational, and exciting experience for my little grandsons. They loved it! It last 3 hours, with education about fish and fishing. The kids then got to catch a fish and "touch it" and release. They also got to feed the fish in the hatchery. They were relaying information learned about rainbow trout, etc. Good job Hatchery!

From Our Editors

The Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery Visitors Centre aims to educate and entertain visitors with programs and events centred on the world of water-breathing animals. The centre's indoor and outdoor facilities allow guests to observe live fish in aquariums as well as in their natural habitat. Educational programs, which are designed to reach specific age groups, include It's a Trout's Life for grades K–2, What's That Habitat? for grades 2–5, and Trout Fast Food, in which visitors in grades 2–5 analyze the insects that trout seek out when their waterproof refrigerators go empty. In the all-ages Learn to Fish program, aspiring anglers learn how to identify fish and use different lures to attract specific species. The program also focuses on responsible fishing ethics and proper fish-handling techniques to increase survival during catch-and-release.
