Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery Visitors Centre

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.

Customer Reviews

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!
