U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Located in Leavenworth, WA, in the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains, our salmon hatchery receives thousands of local, national, and international visitors. Some come to learn about the fish while others are looking for a place to hike, horseback ride, or jump in the river on our 170 acre property. Help us greet, orient, and educate our visitors by staffing the visitor center desk 3 days per week (Friday through Sunday) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

At 1,200 feet elevation, we are surrounded by mountains. We are 2 miles south of the popular small town of Leavenworth, known for its Bavarian flavor and a popular tourist destination. From wineries to rafting, this area offers a lot to explore.

The hatchery is a National Historic Landmark. Opened in 1940, we currently raise spring Chinook salmon. Yakama Nation Fisheries operates partly from our site as well with a coho salmon program. Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery is just one of 3 hatcheries managed together, along with a conservation office. You'll get to work alongside dedicated people who love their work and enjoy helping you learn about what they do. Check out our website for more information:

About U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service

Mission Statement

Working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is the premier government agency dedicated to the conservation, protection, and enhancement of fish, wildlife and plants, and their habitats. We are the only agency in the federal government whose primary responsibility is the conservation and management of these important natural resources for the American public.

The agency includes both the National Wildlife Refuge System and the National Fish Hatchery System.

The Service's origins date back to 1871 when Congress established the U.S. Fish Commission to study the decrease in the nation’s food fishes and recommend ways to reverse that decline. (More on our history below.) Today, we are a diverse and largely decentralized organization, employing about 8,000 dedicated professionals working out of facilities across the country.
