Front caption: Fish Wheel, Columbia River, Oregon. On Line of O.W.R.R. & N. Co.
Date: c. 1912
Publisher: Published by Barkalow Bros., Railway News Service, Omaha, Neb.
Notes: A-8457
Description: Fish wheels were water-powered nets that scooped up migrating salmon and steelhead, funneled them into the wheel through wooden weirs, and dropped them into a holding bin. These fishing devices were usually owned by canneries, and operated on the shallow, fast moving waters of the Columbia River between 1879-1934. Due to conflict with other commercial fishermen and with Native American fishing grounds, laws were eventually passed in both Washington and Oregon prohibiting the use of fish wheels.
