Sawtooth Fish Hatchery

Sawtooth Fish Hatchery was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1984. The hatchery is located in the Sawtooth Valley at an elevation of 6600 feet and was built to withstand the severe winters common to the Sawtooth Mountains. The hatchery was built to produce three million Chinook salmon annually. In addition, it is capable of collecting and incubating about four million steelhead eggs for later transport and rearing at the Hagerman National Fish Hatchery and Magic Valley Fish Hatchery. The hatchery's East Fork satellite facility, was built to trap and spawn both Chinook salmon and steelhead.
