Part of Al Monner news negatives
Blueback salmon in a dipnet being lifted from the water at the McNary Dam on the Columbia River. The water churns beneath the net. Engineers at the dam were attempting to trap and save blueback salmon to strengthen the 1951 run. A similar photograph was published in the Oregon Journal on Sunday, July 15, 1951 (negative 23 of 26).
