The hatchery is a cooperative venture with Curry Anadromous Fishermen, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, people of Central Curry County, and the Knox Family to increase the number of Fall Chinook Salmon in area streams.  Besides raising and then putting 80,000 to 100,000 young salmon in the Rogue River every year, we show the residents and visitors of Curry County how we do this and who makes it happen.





Oregon Anglers Alliance

By Leonard Krug & Hassie Taylor

The Oregon Anglers Alliance, a 501 c3 organization, is the largest angling advocacy in Oregon. OAA maintains a Science Review Panel that is second to none. We represent a collaborative mix of commercial, recreational, and tribal angling organizations, business owners, public agencies, and natural resource advocates, who are dedicated to help ensure the maximum sustainable harvest from our fisheries throughout the state of Oregon. Our goal is to ensure that all state fishery management decisions are science based, providing an optimal future for Oregon fisheries. The management system includes STEP programs, hatcheries and the Oregon Hatchery Research Center, OHRC.
