Relocating Salmon at Cole Rivers Fish Hatchery
Last Thursday, August 10, several members of the Rogue Flyfishers, along with staff and other volunteers,answered the call by STEPS biologist, Ryan Battleson, to help with the netting of spring chinook from a temporary capture pen at the outflow pipe of the hatchery. The fish were loaded onto a live well truck and transferred to the hatchery to be used as brood stock. Of the 16 fish netted, two were wild fish and were quickly released back into the river.
