Late fall at the Les Voigt State Fish Hatchery in northwestern Wisconsin, where the beautiful autumn leaves are still on the trees and there are snowflakes in the air.
The Les Voigt hatchery raises lake trout, splake and brown trout for stocking in the northern great lake and many inland lakes and streams throughout Wisconsin.
It is easy to find along the Wisconsin Lake Superior Scenic Byway since this impressive 1897 Victorian Shingle style building sits at the Hatchery entrance. The building is still used today for supplemental fish rearing space but the majority of operations are now in the newer building behind this one. Built from local brownstone, this building played a historically significant role in the fishing industry on Lake Superior. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981.
Located near Bayfield, Wisconsin, USA.
