Greetings from The Oregon Encyclopedia.

Please see the attached press release from the Oregon Encyclopedia (The
OE), an on-line resource of Oregon history and culture. In partnership with
McMenamins, The OE continues its History Night series with a look back at
the people and events that have shaped our communities. Special guests and
historical images are a part of every event.

“Early Fishing on the Columbia River: From Native Americans to Commercial
Practices of the 1930s”

Presented by Steve Lehl and Chuck Rollins
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
6:30 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
McMenamins Edgefield Power Station Theater, 2126 SW Halsey Street,
Troutdale, OR
Free and open to the public.

 Join us at the July Oregon Encyclopedia History Night to view a remarkable
collection of rarely seen images featuring the history of fishing on the
Columbia River and
its tributaries. Columbia Gorge historians, Chuck Rollins and Steve Lehl
will demonstrate with historic photos and old postcard images the evolution
of fishing on the Columbia from the 1860s into the 1930s. Through images of
fishing methods such as fishwheels, fish traps, horse seines, dipnets, and
gillnets, and of people fishing for salmon, sturgeon and smelt, they
chronicle the diversity of people, fishing practices and fish species, from
the mouth of the Columbia through the Gorge.

See the attached press releases for more details. For more information
