More than 9.4 million young salmon raised at Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery are released into the river or transferred to other sites for release each year. The Little White Salmon River provides a cold, clean source of river water in which salmon are incubated and raised for 6 to 18 months. Spring and Upriver Bright fall Chinook salmon produced at the Little White Salmon National Fish Hatchery contribute significantly to the salmon population harvested by sport and tribal fisheries in the Columbia River, particularly in Drano Lake.
