Bass tank presentation Every year the Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural Resource Education Center opens its doors to the public for the annual open house. The hatchery is located off Rt. 46 near Oxford, Warren County and is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. The Open House is free of charge.

This event is great for people of all ages with many things to see and do throughout the day. The Open House allows the Division of Fish and Wildlife to show off the trout we raise at the state-of-the-art Pequest Trout Hatchery and highlight the trout stocking program.

Each year, thousands of people come to the hatchery to experience this event for themselves. And each year, the Division of Fish and Wildlife strives to make this a bigger event than the year before. This year is no different, and instead of just focusing on fish, we will be inviting many different outdoor enthusiasts and conservationists to join us in our celebrations. There will be numerous environmental and conservation exhibits, wildlife artists, carvers and taxidermists with goods and services to sell.

Activities include fishing for kids between the ages of 6 and 16, archery ranges for those aged 10 years and above, shooting range supervised by the Hunter Education program and more. The Outdoor Market Place will be open so you can purchase what you need to get started or to stock up for the upcoming fishing and hunting seasons.

Food vendors will also participate or you can bring your own lunch and enjoy our picnic groves.

Please leave pets at home - only service dogs are permitted on site.

Families, friends, scout troops, church groups, fishing clubs and anyone else who enjoys the outdoors are encouraged to spend a day at this event!

Please note that the rear entrance is closed during Open House. There is no bus parking available.
