SALMON SWIMMING UP THE SURFACE OF THE APRON IN THE SWIFT WATER BELOW THE CAZADERO DAM The strength of these fish is evidenced by their wonderful runs through water which would seem calculated todash them topieces. No rapid is too rough for them to scale and no fall is too high for them to attempt. I have seen them run under apower-house into the draft-tubes and buck the current till they were washed back, limp and exhausted. They would then retire to a still place, rest up, and come back totry itagain. Itissaid that by leaping and swimming they can surmount a 20-foot fall, and I believe that there is no doubt that they can make a12-foot fall. Photo and note by Shirley C. Hulse.
