’Indian fisher using dipnet.’

	At Sherars Falls, 10 km north of Maupin, a Native American of the Warm Springs tribe is fishing in the Deschutes River. He uses a long-handled dipnet which is set on the river bottom during fishing. In his right hand the fisher holds a line that is connected to the center of the net is such a way that he will feel a little pull when a fish enters it. Only the inhabitants of the Warm Springs Reservation (which is situated further south) have the privilege of fishing this way. The platforms used in this way of fishing are built during low water levels and are the property of a family. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
