California Department of Fish and Wildlife will not release Fish

For the first time in its 59-year-history, CDFW’s Iron Gate Fish Hatchery in Siskiyou County will not release its young salmon into the Klamath River as a result of the drought, disease and other poor river conditions that would most likely doom the fish. CDFW has instead relocated 1.1 million of those juvenile, fall-run Chinook salmon to other hatchery facilities to ride out the summer in cooler waters until they can be returned to Iron Gate and released into the Klamath River later in the year when river conditions improve.
