Salmon Season

Back to the mouth of the Columbia for today's photo, which was taken on the bridge between Washington and Oregon, thanks to a construction flag stop. I remember reading that salmon season was beginning here, and I also remember reading that it would be a good season, but I have to say I wasn't prepared for the quantity of fishing boats near the bridge! Must really be a terrific season! Bill has a fishing trip planned for November...I sure hope there are still some salmon left by then!

I cannot imagine fishing in such open water. I'd be scared the whole time.

That is a lot of boats. I've been Salmon fishing before down on the OR coast. Last year and this year they say the Salmon runs have been fantastic.

An interesting photo. I just read "Braiding Sweetgrass," by Robin Wall Kimmerer, a native American that describes the way the old natives fished for salmon. First honoring them and then letting the old leaders complete their migration back to their home place -- only until a couple days passed would they begin to take the younger salmon. I don't think the salmon have a chance with all these fishermen!!!! -- barbara
