Description
Along the middle course of the Columbia at places where the abruptness of the shore and the up-stream set of an eddy make such method possible, salmon were taken, and still are taken, by means of a long handled dip-net. At favorable seasons a man will, in a few hours, secure several hundred salmon- as many as the matrons and girls of his household can care for in a day.
