Fish Tales Story # 1

This article is about how the Northwest Salmon Sports Fishery got started.  Before this time the Salmon were thought of as a Commercial fishery and nobody knew how to catch them for sport.   "Spinning" was one of these effective methods. It might be fun to try some of these early methods, but most of us would be back to using electric downriggers after we found how much work it was.  If you have any questions, comments or request, please email me at the link below.
