From 1907 through 1939 spawning salmon were trapped at the Cazadero and River Mill Dams on the Clackamas River and their eggs harvested to be used as hatchery brood stock. In about 1980, a new hatchery was opened at McGiver Park. It currently produces 1.7 million chinook smolts a year, of which 1.2 million go into the Clackamas River.
