Salmon hatchery at Baird, Cal., the pioneer salmon hatchery on the Pacific coast, located on the McCloud River, a swift stream formed by the melting snow on Mount Shasta. The station can accommodate 25 million eggs at one time, and in 1907-8 produced about 5 million chinook or quinnat salmon and 10 million eyed eggs. Operations of this hatchery and its auxiliaries at Battle Creek and Mill Creek (73 1/2 million eggs of the chinook salmon were taken in 1907-8) havew been the prime factor in maintaining the salmon run in the Sacramento River
