    Sandra Nelson, who descends from the Umatilla and Yakima tribes, prepares salmon roe for sale beneath the Bridge of the Gods in Cascade Locks. Fishermen from four Native American tribes are selling chinook and coho salmon and steelhead to the public during their fall Columbia River commercial gill-net season. Fish are available now, but the run should peak in the tribal fishing areas in mid-September. Biologists estimate that 615,000 upriver fall chinook and 366,000 summer steelhead will enter the Columbia River.  Photo by Beth Nakamura/The Oregonian.
