Rock Creek Hatchery reopens to public visitors

Aug. 28, 2015

ROSEBURG, Ore – Rock Creek Hatchery reopens to the public this Saturday, August 29. The hatchery was closed to visitors in March during raceway reconstruction.

Two 75-year-old raceways for South Umpqua River winter steelhead broodstock were reconstructed into four, increasing rearing capacity by 25 percent and allowing biologists to conduct research studies.

The project was completed by Deschutes Construction Corporation of Bend, Oregon. Funding came from the Restoration and Enhancement Program which generates revenue by a surcharge on sport fishing licenses, and a matching grant from the Umpqua Steelhead Enhancement Derby.
