Online: Buford Trout Hatchery


Located on the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Forsyth County, the Buford Hatchery allows visitors to view one-half million trout, both brown and rainbow, being reared to stock into Georgia’s designated trout waters.

This hatchery is a fun and informative environment for the whole family. Visitors can take a tour of the hatchery on Saturdays at 1 p.m. and can even feed the fish during that tour.

The state property also features the Lincoln Sparrow Nature Trail
(open 8:00 AM –3:00 PM). This birdwatcher-friendly trail is a quarter-mile loop that includes a spur trail to a boardwalk, which leads to a wetland observation deck. A variety of songbirds and waterfowl may be seen along this trail at different times of the year. Trout anglers can also park outside the hatchery fence and walk around its perimeter to fish in the Chattahoochee River behind the hatchery. 

Open daily from 8 AM to 4:30 PM.
