North Santiam Fish Counts

Minto Fish Facility

The Minto Fish facility is part of the Marion Forks/ Minto Fish Facility complex. Minto is located upstream of Packsaddle Park on the North Santiam River.  The Minto facility has year round fish collection, acclimation for chinook salmon and steelhead, a spawning facility, juvenile acclimation, short and long term holding of adult salmonids, water to water transfers for all fish, and out planting and fish recycling capabilities.   Minto Dam creates an impassable barrier that encourages migrating fish into the facilities fish ladder. All fish moving upstream are counted and disposition is determined depending on species and time of the year.
