Alsea Fish Hatchery

Constructed in 1936, the Alsea Hatchery plays an integral role in providing steelhead as a sustainable resource in the Alsea and Siletz rivers, as well as rainbow trout for a number of stocking locations around the state.

Winter is the best season to visit the hatchery, while steelheaders flock to the river in search of a fish to bring home for dinner. Fish begin showing up in the trap in late December to early January. By March, the trap is usually filled with lots of adult steelhead that have traveled up the fish ladder from the river and are being held for spawning the next generation of fish. In the back of the facility, the rearing ponds hold smolts and trout, while a circular pond holds a white sturgeon for viewing.

ODFW offers a visitor's guide with more information on hours and contact information. Guided tours of the facility can be arranged in advance.
