Columbia River tribes see strong salmon runsFacebook Twitter Google+ Email
THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2003 Tribal fishermen on the Columbia River are seeing the best chinook salmon run in nearly 40 years. About 120,000 are expected to swim upriver, and tribes are allowed to catch up to 6,000. The plentiful numbers allow fishermen to sell the chinook to non-Indians. The tribes with treaty rights on the river are the Yakama, Umatilla, Warm Springs and Nez Perce. Get the Story:
