Welcome to the Saco River Salmon Club

"Our Non-Profit club started in 1983 with a small incubator on the Saco River. In 1997 we closed down that site and built a two floor state-of-the-art hatchery overlooking the tidal waters of the Saco River at Marblehead Lane in Biddeford, Maine. Since then we have stocked several million Atlantic salmon fry which our volunteer membership have raised from fertilized eggs produced by adult salmon...
... cared for at the Craig Brook Hatchery, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hatchery located in Ellsworth, Maine. Early 2009, we held and then released several thousand parr to test our hatchery equipment to learn what it would take (read: cost) to raise 20,000 parr which is our next goal."
