Video: Dip-Netting Chinook on the Klickitat River

Added on by Thomas Boyd.

I spent the evening hanging out at Klickitat Falls watching the Yakama Indians dip net fish. They are true experts at catching fish this way. James Kiona grew up as boy watching his grandfather dip-net salmon at the Celilo Falls and has taught his own son how to dip-net on the Klickitat at Lyle Falls. Even though 60 percent of the chinook have already passed through, the were still catching a lot of fish.
