Nez Perce fishing


On my way to Boise I stopped to watch the Nez Perce fish the Rapid River and ended up talking with a couple tribesmen for about 15 minutes. The men stand on the shore of the raging river and work a 11.5 foot pole (with a large net on the end) through the current. By 10 AM nine Chinook Salmon had been caught. Here’s a pic of one of them.
