Description : Klaskanine Hatchery is located along the North Fork Klaskanine River approximately 12 miles southeast of Astoria, Oregon. Klaskanine Hatchery was first operated in 1911 by the state of Oregon. In 1953, the hatchery was enlarged and renovated under the Columbia River Fisheries Development Program (Mitchell Act). The goal of the hatchery is to produce lower river coho that will contribute to NE Pacific and Columbia River basin commercial and sport fisheries and create a consumptive winter steelhead fishery in the Klaskanine River. This hatchery is closely tied to the Select Area Fisheries Enhancement (SAFE) Program. The facility is currently used primarily for rearing coho for SAFE commercial fisheries, as well as for adult collection and spawning of fall Chinook for Clatsop County Fisheries and as a rearing facility for winter steelhead.
