Master Fish Warden Clanton, after spending the night in Salem, left thU morning for a trip up the Santiam river, where he will make the final selection of the site for the now fish hatchery to be located upon that stream. The two best sites for tha hatchery have alroady boen selected, according to Mr. Clanton, and the task before him is to select tho best of these two. . One is about a milo and-a half below Me bama and the other at the mouth of tho Brackcnbush, bolow Detroit, Of- the two, -the location at the mouth of the Bruckonbush is tho more desirable bo- i. a too of the abundance of water, but tfio absence of roads, or other, means o transportation to this point oporate to make the location near Muhama the more practicable, Mr, Clanton thinks. He will, however, go over the situation thoroughly beforo making his final rec ommendations to the fish and game com mission, with whom the final decision rests. . Tho hatchery, construction work up on which ha been delayed by the scar city of deputy wardens to superintend the work, will be completed by spring, Mr. Clanton says. One warderf who ha been doing other work on the Bracken bush will be available for this work shortly. With only the $5000 apropriated for this project by the last legislature avail able, the hatchery is to bo so built as to provide for further units to be con structed as the money is secured. While the Suntiam plant is to be pri marily a salmon hatchery, trout will also be handled and Mr. Clanton is of the opinion that the fish thus secured will go far toward stocking the streams in this part of the state as they should be stocked and th0 loss of tish, through long hauls to the planting grounds will be minimumlzed.
