The major portion of Elk River Hatchery construction was completed in 1968. In 1971 the hatchery intake and ten new ponds completed final construction. Revenues for funding facility operations are from General funds.

The purpose of the facility is to supplement natural production of Fall Chinook in the Elk and Chetco Rivers and Winter Steelhead in the Chetco River.

The facility is used to collect Elk River fall chinook, to incubate eggs and rear both natural and hatchery fall chinook and winter steelhead.
