At the beginning of the twentieth century, local fishermen at the mouth of Sucker Creek (now Oswego Creek) would catch one ton of salmon per night at the beginning of salmon season. In this photo we see five men participating in that bounty. From left to right, they are identified as Rollie Worthington, Ike Austin, Ed Erickson, Otto Larson, and Willie Austin. Sucker Creek, and Sucker Lake, had their names officially changed to Oswego Creek and Lake in 1913. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
