AAA Editor Notes
Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery is 6 mi. s.w. of downtown Branson via SRs 76W and 165, at the n. end of Table Rock Dam at 483 Hatchery Rd. Rainbow and brown trout are raised at this cold-water facility, which typically produces more than 1,125,000 catchable fish annually; it also supplies eggs and fingerlings to other trout production facilities. A visitor center features aquarium displays and exhibits that describe the trout spawning cycle and the process of fish rearing. The Table Rock Lakeshore Trail follows the lake's wooded shoreline.
