Description : Lookingglass Hatchery, located along Lookingglass Creek, a tributary of the Grande Ronde River, 2 miles from Palmer Junction in northeast Oregon, was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1982 as part of the Lower Snake River Compensation Program. The hatchery is to return adult Chinook salmon, lost because of construction of the four Lower Snake River dams, back to the Imnaha and Grand Ronde Rivers. In 1985, the hatchery program was expanded to include enhancement of the native population of spring Chinook salmon in the Imnaha River. The Lookingglass Hatchery also provides rearing space for the Grande Ronde Basin Spring Chinook Salmon Captive Broodstock Project.
