Valentine State Fish Hatchery

Located just northeast of Valentine in a pine-covered valley, the Valentine Fish Hatchery is one of five hatcheries in the state. Spread over 700 acres, the hatchery handles millions of fish eggs annually. In most years, lakes in Cherry County alone are stocked with some 675,000 fish.

Just to the north, Government Canyon—a 640 acre area—offers prime wildlife habitat and activities including hiking, biking, bird watching, and hunting in specified areas.
