Siletz Falls Fish Trap

June 13, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Siletz Falls Fish Trap

On Wednesday, June 13, 2018, the Newport Adventure Van will be heading to Siletz Falls for a guided tour of the fish traps. (9:15am – 5:00pm). The guided tour starts at 10:30 am.

The Siletz River Basin is unique in the fact that it contains viable runs of seven species of migrating fish, spring and fall Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, Chum salmon, summer and winter Steelhead, and sea-run cutthroat trout.

The Siletz Falls adult capture facility is located in the fish ladder at Siletz Falls and is operated year-round to control fish passage to the upper Siletz River Basin. It is also used for monitoring purposes and to collect winter and summer steelhead hatchery brood stock.

After the tour, a picnic lunch will be at Moonshine Park where you can roast some hot dogs and marshmallows over an open fire!

This beautiful 18 acre park features fishing, swimming, camp sites, boat launch, restrooms, horse shoe pits and plenty of open space.

Cost of this trip is $16.00. For more information, or to pay for your seat, stop by the Newport 60+ Activity Center located at 20 SE 2nd St, or call 541-265-9617. For a full list of presentations, events and trips: www.newportoregon.gov/sc
