During your visit to Strawberry Valley, stop in at the Strawberry Visitor Center to gather information about activities in the area. Forest Service personnel can answer questions, provide maps, or maybe even suggest a good fishing hole. Interpretive displays tell the story of Strawberry Valley's history, development of the reservoir, and management of Utah's premiere fishery.
Visit Strawberry in spring or fall to see the spawning runs of Bear Lake cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon. Barrier-free nature trails at the visitor center provide excellent viewpoints to see spawning fish in the Strawberry River. Near the visitor center, the Division of Wildlife Resources operates a fish trap on Strawberry River. During the peak of the spawning runs, visit the trap to see biologists taking eggs from spawning fish that will be raised in hatcheries. The Strawberry River Discovery Trail follows the river downstream from the visitor center.
Bird blinds along the trail provide excellent cover for viewing Strawberry's abundant bird life and signs explain the habitat that draws these birds and other wildlife to Strawberry Valley. There is much to do at the Strawberry Visitor Center; even if it's just a stop for an afternoon picnic by the river. Don't miss it!
