The crew of a fish wheel near the Dalles shows off their catch. Though mobile, being mounted on a flat-bottom boat, many fish wheels like this one were more-or-less permanently moored at a productive site along the bank of the river. You can see in detail 2 that two fish have just been caught up in the large baskets that make up the wheel. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
