Directions: From the intersection of the Old Island Highway and the new Laburnum Road drive south to Claymore Road and turn right. Follow Claymore Road to the entrance to the Little Qualicum River Fish Hatchery (2.4 Km from the Old Island Hwy. to the entrance just after crossing the bridge over Whiskey Creek). Turn right into the Fish Hatchery or park on the road outside the gate if you expect to be leaving later than 4:00 P.M. There is a map of the fish hatchery, an outhouse, picnic tables and interpretive displays near the entrance. Continue through the parking area to a yellow gate between two interpretive signs. Follow the gravel road on top of the dyke for approximately 25 minutes to the end of the Spawning Channel. Follow the road to the left, along the chain link fence and by the yellow gate. Keep straight on the road as it passes an office/maintenance building, and continues through the Hatchery to the Fishery Viewing Room. Turn right and head up the road to the entrance gate.
