Lookingglass Fish Hatchery
Lookingglass Fish Hatchery was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1982. The hatchery is to return adult Chinook salmon, lost because of construction of the four Lower Snake River dams, back to the Imnaha and Grand Ronde Rivers. This objective was established to restore tribal and sport fisheries by producing harvestable surpluses of salmon for the upper Grand Ronde and Imnaha Rivers and also to enhance natural spring chinook populations. Adults for the program are trapped at the hatchery and Imnaha satellite facility. Lookingglass FH was built to produce about 1.4 million smolts.
