Description : The hatchery is located along Gnat Creek, a lower Columbia River tributary approximately 17 miles east of Astoria, Oregon. Gnat Creek Hatchery was constructed in 1960 as part of the Columbia River Fisheries Development Program (Mitchell Act).

Due to reduction in funding, this hatchery is currently not being used for the rearing of anadromous fish.
