An aerial view of the Green Lake National Fish Hatchery.  At the top of the photo you can see Green Lake, the water supply source for the Hatchery.  At the bottom right is Graham Lake.

The Green Lake National Fish Hatchery in the winter. The large building to the left is the main facility, the portion closest is the broodstock facility and the section jutting out is the administration portion of the facility. To the extreme right are the outdoor tanks.

This photo shows one of the 20-foot outdoor tanks where smolt and parr are held.

The Fry Nursery is within the main building and houses fry salmon.

Pictured is Rocky Pond which served as the water supply for Green Lake Hatchery. The sluiceway carried water to the spawning house nearly a mile downstream. This original site was active from 1891 to 1923, two years after Mr. Charles G. Atkins' death. Charles' wife Nellie lived to the 1930's.
