dip net platforms…

at Cascade Locks, Oregon. Unoccupied this day. Below is a photo I took at The Dalles near the previously posted ’tilt house’ area. That fellow is enjoying solitude. Such platforms are traditionally the works of Native Americans, who dip a long handled net in hope of scooping a salmon passing through. They harvest the fish, then sell them near the highways, to passerby.

Stream survey for salmon…

A stroll up Crystal Springs, in Portland, looking for signs of Coho Salmon spawning…usually spawned out/dead fish or possibly still on the redd. Crystal Springs comes out of a hillside up by my house, runs into a man made lake (Reed Lake) and the continues out for a few miles to Johnson Creek, which dumps into the larger Willamette River, a major tributary of the mighty Columbia River. Efforts have been ongoing for several years to improve habitat along the stream for returning Coho. In our region, Coho are also called Silvers.

just beneath the surface…

the leaves, for the moment, stuck in time…   A Oregon coastal river waiting for freshets and salmon.

“There are two sorts of curiosity – the momentary and the permanent. The momentary is concerned with the odd appearance on the surface of things. The permanent is attracted by the amazing and consecutive life that flows on beneath the surface of things.” Robert Wilson Lynd

Moving upriver…

Here is a Chinook Salmon moving up the fish ladder at Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River. A subterranean viewing room allows visitors to watch all manner of fish swimming against a strong current, moving up the fish ladder. This has allowed the fish to bypass the deadly turbines of the dam’s hydroelectric process. Here, my Grandson Maddox took in the Salmon & Steelhead moving by the viewing windows.
