It has been questioned whether the present hatchery on the Clackamas River actually receives the quinnat salmon in any numbers.
The great majority of the quinnat salmon and nearly all blue-back salmon enter the rivers in the spring.
It should be placed on a stream where the quinnat salmon actually come to spawn.
The quinnat salmon, from its great size and abundance, is more valuable than all other fishes on our Pacific coast together.
In some cases, notably the quinnat salmon and the blue-back salmon, the length of these migrations is surprisingly great.
