Cedar Creek Hatchery will close for construction

June 17, 2016

TILLAMOOK, Ore. — Cedar Creek Hatchery near Hebo is closed to the public until Nov. 1 while the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife makes several upgrades to the salmon-rearing facility on Oregon’s North coast.

The closure is necessary to facilitate construction of four new raceways and a new show pond, according to hatchery manager Joshua Rist. The project will also include an upgrade to an existing pollution abatement system.

Cedar Creek Hatchery produces spring Chinook salmon for the Nestucca River, Little Nestucca River and Three Rivers. When construction is completed in the fall, the new raceways will also be used to accommodate Trask River spring Chinook.

The construction is being completed by Five Rivers Construction of Longview, Wash.

For more information, contact Joshua Rist, hatchery manager, at 503-392-3485.
