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.
