Fisherman piers


Photograph (35 mm glass slide) of several men standing on piers and rocks stretching out into the Columbia River. He is wearing a white t-shirt. This image is from a collection of photographs taken at Celilo Falls. The description of this photograph from Ullin's 1948 notes reads, "In September, when run is on, Indians from many tribes fish on bank. By concentrating their fishing during the months when the adult salmon are fighting their way up the river to spawn, the Indian fishermen are assured of large catches of good-sized fish."
