November 8, 2023
2023 Chinook Salmon Egg Harvest Continues.
To date, we have sent 108,600 eggs to ODFW’s hatchery at Elk River and keeping 63,160 at the Gardiner hatchery.
Eggs are hand spawned and held in clean buckets. Eggs and sperm are mixed, fertilized eggs are placed in Redd Zone Incubation Boxes where they will be held until they are “eyed”.
