Clack Hatchery History
In 1877 the first fish hatchery in Oregon was built on the Clackamas River one mile below Carver. It was built by the Oregon and Washington Fish Propagating Company and operated for four years. Personnel of the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries took the fall chinook salmon eggs and as soon as the fry were hatched, they released them back into the river. This operation was discontinued in 1880.
