Issaquah Salmon Hatchery

125 West Sunset Way, Issaquah, WA 98027

Admission: Free

The Issaquah Salmon Hatchery plays host to over 300,000 visitors each year. The facility is open to visitors year round. It has very good interpretive signs and displays to help guests learn about salmon and their life cycles, and about the hatchery itself.

Inside the front door, there is an aquarium of fish the same age and size as the fish in the hatchery's holding tanks. The best time to visit is September and October, when the salmon return to the hatchery up Issaquah Creek and when Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (F.I.S.H.) offers public tours.
