Roaring River Hatchery
-Oregon Fish and Wildlife-

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 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.

Best time to visit: All year. November - December for trout spawning.

Fish raised: Rainbow trout, and summer and winter steelhead.

What to see and do

Roaring River Hatchery has an outdoor display board and interpretive signing on the hatchery ponds. Rainbow trout weighing up to 15 pounds each are a popular viewing feature.

Nearby: A Linn County park, about 1/2 mile away, offers picnicking and fishing on Roaring River.
