Roaring River Hatchery Visitors' Guide

Roaring River Hatchery was constructed in 1924. Many improvements have been made to the hatchery since original construction. In 1987 and 1996 new raceway ponds were constructed to replace the original raceways. The hatchery is a mixed-stock facility, producing both anadromous fish and resident trout. The hatchery is used for rearing summer and winter steelhead from fingerling to smolt. The rainbow trout program involves broodstock maintenance, spawning, egg incubation and rearing.
