  • Description
  • In 1899, the state of Washington opened a salmon hatchery on Soos Creek, east of Auburn. In the hatchery's pools, Department of Fisheries workers hatched salmon eggs and raised young salmon for release in area streams.This photographic postcard, probably made between 1907 and 1912, shows the State Salmon Hatchery, also called the Green River Hatchery. Fish nets dry under the eaves of the building. Several of the workers hold large fish.
