Looking for something fun to do with the family this summer? Head just past the hospital on North Down River Rd and visit the Grayling Fish Hatchery! Visit their 1,000+ Rainbow trout in their raceways, provided by the Michigan DNR, look for our wild trout populations who are always ready for a handout of fish food, visit the marsh raceway which houses many turtles and frogs, and 16 and under are welcome to fish in the Children’s Fishing Pond for free. Just bring your own equipment and bait and practice. Catch and release only.
