Our Fall Chinook Development

Ceder Creek Hatchery update: 01-24-23

Status and development of the fall chinook that were spawned by the Nestucca Anglers in October/November 2022 are here and doing well at our Cedar Creek Hatchery. There were two egg takes (10/26/22 & 11/2/22).  Both groups have hatched and are looking healthy. The sack fry are currently trayed down in our basket troughs and are forecasted to be “buttoned up” (egg sack fully absorbed) by the end of February/early March. Once the sack fry have completely absorbed their yolks we will begin them on a starter feed.
