This fishing photo shows two methods of taking salmon at the falls. In the foreground, the man is using a hook, not a net, on the end of his long pole to snag fish as they come to the surface making their way upstream. In the background, we can see at least one fish wheel to the right. There are a number of other unidentified buildings in the distance. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
