The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission will host an open house Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Huntsdale State Fish Hatchery.

The hatchery is at 195 Lebo Road, Carlisle.

Bureau of Hatcheries Director Brian Wisner will make a presentation, and a presentation will also be made to former Huntsdale State Fish Hatchery Manager Jim Wetherill.

Self-guided tours of the facility will be available. Activities include amphibians and reptile display, habitat management displays, casting area, fish prints, stocking truck with viewer's platform, boating safety information and fish feeder truck. Light refreshments will be for sale, and fishing licenses and commission history books will also be for sale.

Spawning demonstrations will be held at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m., and trout stocking will take place at Yellow Breeches Creek at 3:45 p.m.

General public parking for the open house will be at the Penn Township Fire Company on Pine Road off of Centerville Road (take the Newville exit off of I-81 and turn on to Centerville Road). A shuttle bus will then provide transportation from the parking lot to the hatchery.

Vehicles displaying a person-with-disability placard should drive directly to the Visitor's Center entrance for wheelchair accessibility.
