CHICO, Calif -- The Feather River Fish Hatchery ladder is now open. 

There is a viewing section at the hatchery where visitors can watch the salmon swim after they've climbed up the ladder.

About 15 million salmon eggs are collected at the hatchery after the salmon spawn.

Action News Now spoke with Anna Kastner, the manager at the hatchery. She explained why this is such a special tradition.

"It's so close, kids can see them, you can get to the window, get close to it and really actually see doing what they do, swimming up the ladder," said Kastner.

The hatchery will host the annual Oroville Salmon Festival on September 22nd. You can find more information here.
