Description

Recreational or sport f i s h e r i e s f o r Pacific salmon (genus Oncorhynchus) are conducted along the west coast of North America from central California north t o Alaska's Arctic region. Salmon angling along the West Coast has increased in magnitude and stature since the early 1880's. The sport has grown from a few trollers off Monterey, California, to over 4 million angler days of effort annually in Washington-Oregon alone. Native Americans (Indians) were the first to capture Pacific salmon. Frank Haw and Ray Buckley (1972) theorize that there had t o be some pleasure derived from the struggle. However, from what is known of the importance of the salmon to the pre-European Indian economy and the attendant ceremony, one could equally surmise that the harvest of salmon was strictly business.show more
