OSD Hatchery Program Makes Steady Improvements.
Carlisle Lake receives 100,000 Coho Salmon and 28,000 Steelhead. 
The fish are held in the net pens, which are now anchored to shoreline. This change allows us to be more efficient in our feeding, providing larger fish for fishermen to catch in April. Kevin Hoffman, Hatchery Teacher states "I decided to move our net pens to shore, add a catwalk, and increase our feeding regimes. We are now able to feed 3 times per day, 20 minutes each time, and on the weekends."

Historically, the net pens were located in the middle of Carlisle Lake, where they were accessed by boat during a single class period. The method was inefficient and the feeding of the fish was less than adequate. 

The Chehalis Basin Fisheries Task Force paid for this project. They have been a great support over the last 20+ years to the program.
