Fish Hatcheries

There are a lot of lakes and rivers in Missouri which attract many fishermen. To keep up with the demand for fish the state of Missouri runs several fish hatcheries, one of which is in Branson. The visitor centre has a short video explaining the process from start to fish. Outside are ponds with various sizes of trout fish.

One of the many the attractions just outside of Branson is the “Shepard of the Hills Homestead” at which only the observation tower was open, and we decided to do the tourist thing and pay the $5 (can you believe it) to take the elevator to the top of the tower. The view was pretty good but I not sure that I got my monies worth.

Outside a cute shop in Branson. This store had some beautiful pottery and some amazing wood carvings.

The trout are attacking!!!! Throwing in a few pieces of fish food caused the trout to swarm to the surface.
