Crews removing hazard trees at hatchery

Crews at Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery are cutting down hazardous trees in a project set to run through February 21. Public access is restricted to the main parking lot during this time.

Winter storms damaged some trees at Wizard Falls hatchery that need to be removed to prevent structural damage to the facility or serious injury to staff or visitors.

Anglers and hikers who wish to park at the hatchery may do so but cannot access the facility grounds due to safety concerns during tree removal. Hiking trails nearby remain open.

ODFW will conduct yearly maintenance of trees on the hatchery grounds during winter months, which will have the least impact on visitors because it is a slower time of year for visitation.
