October 1, 2020

ODFW Hatchery Program Manager Scott Patterson walks us through a half-dozen of the most common misconceptions about Oregon's fish hatcheries including why so many people talk about closing hatcheries, when only one hatchery has closed in the last decade. This episode will debunk a lot of the fish tales that you see floating around the Internet and give you a much better understanding about Oregon's hatchery program.
