The Bellvue Fish Hatchery

Today we went to the fish hatchery in Bellvue, a few minutes out of Fort Collins. It was fun watching the fish swim up and down their raceways. One of the best parts about it is a fish food dispenser where you can purchase a handful of fish food for a quarter. It made me want to bring a lot of quarters. We spent about 45 minutes walking around, looking at the fish, and looking for the big fish. We finally found one that was about 2 feet long in the water channel before it dropped into the raceways.

Can you spot the big fish?
