Round Butte Hatchery was constructed in 1972 to mitigate for the fishery losses caused by Pelton/Round Butte (PRB) Hydroelectric Complex. Round Butte and its satellite (Pelton Ladder) are used for adult collection, egg incubation and rearing of spring chinook, and summer steelhead.

Best time to visit: All year. May - September for spring chinook collection and holding. Late August - early September for spring chinook spawning. Late January - early March for summer steelhead spawning.

Fish raised: Spring chinook and summer steelhead.

What to see and do

Round Butte Hatchery is owned by Portland General Electric and is operated and managed by ODFW. Public access is available by advance arrangement only. Please call ahead.

Nearby: The Cove Palisades State Park is a year-round recreational destination with numerous water activities. The park is situated among towering cliffs that surround Lake Billy Chinook. The park features water recreational opportunities, hiking and camping.
