Entiat National Fish Hatchery (ENFH) is located in central Washington about 24 miles north of Wenatchee in Chelan County. The station is situated six miles southwest of the City of Entiat along the Entiat River. The hatchery site is about 7 miles from the confluence of the Entiat River and the Columbia. Our address is 6970 Fish Hatchery Drive, Entiat, WA, 98822.

How to Find Us

Just as you approach the town of Entiat on State Highway 97A, go west on to Entiat River Road. Signing is located on the highway. Travel 6 miles to Roaring Creek Road, take a left, cross the bridge, and turn at the first right into the hatchery entrance. Welcome!


Tour the Hatchery

Visitors are welcome to tour our hatchery. In summer, a volunteer may be on hand to show you around. Although our small staff is busy, we can help answer your questions, too.

A kids fishing pond was installed on the property in 2012. The pond is open for fishing only during the Entiat Outdoor Days program, when local students make field trips to the hatchery. (Read about this project and the Outdoor Days event here.) Many trees were planted around the pond, too. Visit each year and see how this reclaimed landscape changes over time!

Pets must be on a leash.

Walk for Wildlife

Behind the hatchery’s main building and nursery, a trail crosses the outlet from our abatement pond and leads to the river. Follow the graveled riparian trail through a stand of cottonwood trees and enjoy sightings of birds and other wildlife.

The work of the Mid-Columbia Fish & Wildlife Conservation Office is visible from the trail. Learn more about their work at Entiat here.
