Cole M. River Hatchery
The public can view the Cole M. Rivers Hatchery raceways from an overhead viewing area, March 3, 2020. Army engineers and biologists expect power problems at Cole M. Rivers hatchery, in southern Oregon, to impact at least one brood year of fish. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) officials had earlier hoped the power failure to only effect one brood year. The main electrical power feeder from Lost Creek Dam to the Cole M. Rivers Hatchery failed at the end of April 2021. Corps staff initially attempted multiple repairs to the line, but those splices failed due to the age of the cable. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) staff have assisted as needed.
