Things to Do

Spooner Hatchery / Gov Tommy Thompson Fish Hatchery
Spooner — only about 5 or 6 miles from Trego — is home to the largest cool water hatchery in the world. It’s a remarkable facility featuring state-of-the-art equipment for raising walleyes and muskies. The Visitor Center offers hands-on activities for every age and during summer there are tours of the entire hatchery. Friends Into Spooner Hatchery (FISH) is a non-profit group that helps the hatchery with outdoor education and events.

Wisconsin Heritage Canoe Museum
Nearby Spooner is also home to the Wisconsin Heritage Canoe Museum. “This eclectic assemblage of boats is exciting in its diversity, and includes significant craft from the golden age of North American canoeing as well as work by important contemporary builders.” Visit the WCHM. Hours are here on their website. Don’t miss it if you’re in the area and love the outdoors.
