Drift gillnetting came to the Columbia River in the early 1850s. Many gillnetters on the river today are third- and fourth-generation descendants of fishermen who immigrated to the region in the nineteenth century. Here they established new communities and developed the most advanced gillnet fishery found anywhere in the world. Based on a series of oral history interviews. This half-hour slide/tape describes the unique culture of the Columbia River gillnetter.
