Hatchery Releases

Coho salmon are carefully spawned and reared for the Russian River Coho Salmon Captive Broodstock Program by our US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) partners at the Don Clausen Fish Hatchery at Warm Springs Dam. Program fish are reared using restoration hatchery techniques, then planted into select tributaries to the Russian River as juveniles (young-of-the-year and smolts). See the release summary table for total numbers stocked into each stream over time. 

For questions specific to hatchery rearing and fish releases, please email Ben White, at Benjamin.c.white@usace.army.mil.
