Irrigon Hatchery began operation in 1984 as part of the Lower Snake River Compensation Program (LSRCP)—a program to mitigate for spring Chinook and summer steelhead losses caused by the four federal dams constructed on the lower Snake River.

In addition, Irrigon is also used as a rearing site for legal-sized rainbow trout destined for northeast Oregon waters.
