The Clackamas river is recognized as
one of the best in the country for arti
ficial fish propagation, and the oldest
hatchery in the Northwest is that lo
cated on the river at the mouth of Clear
creek. That U owned and maintained
by the United States Fish Commission.
It will not be operated this year, how
ever, the government having made ar
rangements for a hatchery at the Ded
man place, four miles below, and near
the railroad, vi he-e better water is avail
able than at the Clear Creek institution.
The plant necessary is not expensive. A
third hatchery is operated at the head
waters of the Clackim&8(within the Cas
cade forest reserve, about 60 miles by
wagon road and trail from this city.
This plant is owned by the State of Ore
gon. It has been run four years, with
out buildings. So far, it has been one
of the most satisfactory stations operated
by the state, and a permanent plant is
expected to be provided there before
next season. '
E.N. Carter, superintendent of the
Clackamas hatchery ,is busy getting ma
terial ready for the construction of the
new hatchery building, four miles fui
ther down the river. The old batc'.ery
will be kept intact in charge of a watch
man, so that it will be kept in proper or
der if it is desired to use it in the future.
Mr. Carter says that the new hatchery
is for temporary use, although it may be
made permanent. It has the advantage
of pure spring water .and is conveniently
situated with reference to the railroad.
The same plan of work adopted at the
old hatchery will be carried out, except
that a specialty will be made of hatching
lake trout and whiteflsh, in addition to
chinook salmon. A telephone and other
conveniences will be added to the new
station, and Mr. Carter will remove his
family to Oregon City, the new hatch
ery being easily accessible by rail.
