The summer of 2007 was one of the most successful Hidden Falls hatchery returns in years.  Four boats;  including the F/V Harvestor, the F/V Rose Lee, the F/V Island Girl, and the F/V Island Pride hauled in just under 4 millions pounds of chum salmon in less the 21 days.  It was incredible to see massive sets of chum salmon flow over the rails again and again.  In recent years, the hatchery has fallen short in chum production.  Many fishermen speculate that the humpback whales have taken up residence and consume the newly released salmon fry to their bellies content.
