   Canyonville Acclimation Pond
A cooperative project between ODFW, Umpqua Fishermen’s Association and the City of Canyonville, the Canyonville Acclimation Pond along Canyon Creek is a busy place for a good part of the year.  While the property is owned by ODFW and the city controls the water source, volunteers from the Umpqua Fishermen’s Association accomplish the day-to-day tasks.  The facility acclimates 60,000 winter steelhead annually that contribute to the fishery in the mainstream and South Umpqua rivers. After those fish are released into Canyon Creek between February and April, the hatchery hosts 300,000 fall Chinook salmon fry, where they are fin clipped — often by local students — then released into the Calapooya River system by early summer.  The volunteers also run an active fishing and aquatic conservation education program and host about 400 students each year.
