STATE GAME COMMISSION
PLANTS MILLIONS TROUT
Fiih Reach Length of Sis Inchee
Before Liberation Many
During the past fiscal year a total
of 20,345,278 trout were liberated
in the streams of Oregon by the
hatchery department of the Oregon
State Came commisLion. This
number included rainbows, eteel
head, eastern brooks, cutthroats,
silversidea and graylings. Practi
cally all of these fish were six Inches
or more In length. The largest
number, 3,875,310 went to Klamath
county, but each county had streamy
that were planted. The smallest
number, 21,320 went t0' Multnomah
The Commission has adopted the
pojicy of raising trout' to a length
of six inches or more before they
are liberated. This insures a much
lower mortality than was shown
when much smaller fry were liberal
ed. A six-inch trout, liberated
early in the year, will make a cub
stantial growth before the season,
opens for angling.
Approximately $400,000 is receiv
ed annually by the Oregon State
Game commission from hunters,
anglera and trappers. This money
goes to support the 29 hatcheries

i frame farms and the law nff,rr.
