Fish, Family, and the Future
Grayling Hatchery Incorporated continues its efforts to establish a facility that attract families and researchers while educating visitors on the unique natural resource we have in our backyard - the Au Sable River. Ultimately, our purpose is to serve the community and the Au Sable River. The Grayling Fish Hatchery strives to preserve, protect, and enhance the relationship between our families, our Anglers, and nature. We hope that you can visit the Grayling Fish Hatchery to experience all of our education and conservation initiatives firsthand. We have been hatching inspiration since 1919!
"My dream for the hatchery is to redevelop the old hatchery building into a new and usable facility for researchers and guests to enjoy."
"My favorite part about working at the hatchery is interacting with our younger guests. Watching their faces light up and seeing how excited they are to feed our fish makes my job worthwhile."
"The Grayling Fish Hatchery is uniquely positioned to be a community resource, historical landmark, and the center of Au Sable trout research."
"When I am at the hatchery, I enjoy sharing experiences with our smiling guests such as observing soaring Ospreys and Eagles, hearing songbirds sing, and feeding the wild trout that reside in hatchery waters!"
"The Grayling Fish Hatchery is more than just a place to feed fish. This unique, outdoor experience inspires curiosity and exploration through conservation education in a surreal atmosphere."
