about Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH):
br> Although visitors can see tanks of fish and displays at any time of year, September and October are the best months to visit to see returning fish as they crowd the creek.
br> Check the website for information on tours of the hatchery. If you visit with the kids, look for the eight-foot "Big Salmon" bronze salmon statue at the hatchery, and visit the park across the street if you need a place to run around.
Summer camp: During the summer, Friends of Issaquah Salmon Hatchery (FISH) offers Salmon Science Camp for kids ages six to 11. Kids learn about the salmon's life cycle, habitat, and anatomy; conduct experiments about watersheds and pollution; sample and test Issaquah Creek; play educational games; use microscopes; learn to identify native plants; and more.
