Standing along, or in, the south edge of the Columbia, this proud crew shows off the results of their labors. You can see both the quantity and the size of the salmon they have taken. They're using a seine net, a type of fishing no longer legal in this area. The gentleman on the right looks like he's working pretty hard to hold his prize fish, hoisted over his shoulder on a gaff. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
