Description
The plate shows the ruggedness characteristic of the shores of Klamath river. Eddies caused by projecting masses of rock are the spots chosen for taking salmon in dip-nets, both because the upstream set of the current permits the net to be held with the opening down-stream and because the salmon are attracted to such pools of slack water after combatting the swift current.
