Stopped by while on an eagle watch weekend. Enjoyed our visit and feeding the trout. Nice waterfall behind the hatchery and eagles across the road.

What a great place to view the Decorah eagles, and why not, the fish hatchery is full of trout. All sizes and types are here, and they let you feed them (for 25 cents) Beautiful scenery.
