Details

Taken as part of a U. S. Farm Security Administration project, this comparatively recent photo shows two Native American men working a dip net on their slippery platform. Note the use of an edge board on the downstream side of the platform to help the fishermen avoid slipping into the river. A wooden box in the foreground awaits the men's catch.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
