Rowdy Creek Hatchery Update

Rowdy Creek - Smith River, CA (Del Norte County)

by Kenny Priest

As of Wednesday, 30 Chinook salmon have been trapped at the hatchery according to hatchery manager Andrew Van Scoyk. “This is a pretty typical number for this time of the year; I’d say we’re right on track. We only take 25 males and 25 females, so we should be sitting pretty well after the next big rise," Van Scoyk added.
