Chief Joseph Hatchery is a state-of-the art facility that was built to increase spring, summer, and fall Chinook salmon in the Okanogan and Columbia Rivers. The hatchery will produce up to 2.9 million Chinook fry annually and will provide salmon for tribal ceremonies, subsistence needs for tribal members, and increase recreational fishing opportunities for all. The $50 million hatchery was completed in May of 2013 and is located in Bridgeport, Washington next to Chief Joseph Dam.  For more information on Chief Joseph Hatchery, go to: www.colvilletribes.com/cjhp.php
