Cole M. Rivers Hatchery

Cole Rivers Hatchery was constructed by the US Army Corps of Engineers in 1973 to mitigate for spawning and rearing areas blocked by the construction of Lost Creek, Applegate and Elk Creek Dams. The hatchery was named in honor of Cole M. Rivers, a biologist on the Rogue River for 20 years. The facility is used for adult collection, spawning, egg incubation and rearing of spring Chinook, coho, summer steelhead, and winter steelhead, and egg incubation and rearing of fall Chinook and rainbow trout.
