  • 6 Klamath Life Change of Pace Destinations

    By ANDREW MARIMANH&N Staff Photographer See SALMON, page 8

    A fter traversing 191 uninterrupted miles of Klamath River water, chinook will soon return to the place of their birth the Iron Gate Hatchery.

    Anglers, hot on their tail fins, are chasing them upriver. Soon, the Klamath River, in the stretch below the dam, will be teeming with exhausted salmon and jammed with drift boats and wader-clad, pole-toting sport anglers. Fishery management officials are predicting this falls chinook run will be the largest in modern history. This is a busy time for area residents. The Iron Gate Hatchery will be buzzing, harvesting countless eggs and the nearby Klamath Ranch and Resort anticipates it will be booked solid through the end of October.

    Iron Gate Hatchery Each year, Keith Pomeroy, Iron Gate Hatchery manager, oversees the hatching and rearing of some 6 million chinook, to offset the estimated loss of natu-ral production in the ecosystem between Iron Gate Dam and the Copco Complex, 11 miles upstream.
