Details

In this comparatively recent photo taken by government photographer Russell Lee, we see an individual fisherman using a dip net to capture salmon at Celilo Falls. Detail view 2 gives a better look at the net, which can be closed by its operator when a fish is caught. In detail view 1, we can see the stout rope tied to the fisherman, to keep him from being totally carried away by the current if he slips and is pulled off his platform.

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