Willard National Fish Hatchery is on the Little White Salmon River approximately five miles upstream from Drano Lake. Anglers may fish for resident cutthroat and rainbow trout along approximately 600 feet of hatchery-owned shoreline on the river’s northwest bank, which is southeast of the Cook-Underwood Road. A natural falls barrier at River Mile Two prevents salmon and steelhead from migrating upstream past the hatchery. Anglers must possess a valid state of Washington fishing license, and comply with state fishing regulations.
