Klamath Fishing Report

The Daily Triplicate reports on salmon fishing on the Klamath River. They make it sound like it's mostly smaller fish being caught but the one in the picture accompanying the story looks pretty big to me.

One thing I was unaware of was that members of indian tribes can fish for salmon commercially using gill nets. I was under the impression they had to eat whatever they caught.

By treaty rights the tribal members have a right to generate income from the natural resources within their territory, including fish. And the federal government has the obligation, which they freely took on, to manage those resources so they can. These are just inherited assets, just as any other legal arrangements or property that are passed on.
