Harrison Lake National Fish Hatchery (NFH) is a 444-acre facility located in the quiet rural setting of Virginia's historic tidewater plantation country. Established in the 1930’s, Harrison Lake NFH plays a key role in protecting and restoring declining populations of migratory fish such as American shad, and imperiled freshwater mussels. Come visit us. We are open 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, M-F, and closed on federal holidays. Enjoy fishing, boating, birding, picnicking, and hiking up to the 99-acre Harrison Lake. We also are adjacent to the Virginia Capital Trail, a 52-mile biking/hiking trail connecting Williamsburg to Richmond, Virginia. We offer a fun, free catch and release fishing day at the Harrison Lake NFH during National Fishing and Boating Week in June each year for youth under the age of 16.
