Spring Salmon runs into trouble
■ Salmon population is on the decline
by Michele Myers
The Print Editorial Staff
Spring salmon season is
in full force this spring, and ques­
tions are again being raised about
where are the salmon?
Salmon going over the
Willamette Falls have steadily
declined throughout the past de­
cades, and once fruitful salmon
seasons where hog-lines would
appear across the Willamette are
long since gone. The salmon just
don’t seem to be there any more.
Fishing, predators, hydroelectric
plants, agriculture, forestry and
various other contributions have
threatened the salmon runs from
our rivers to the ocean.
Salmon have a long ar­
duous journey of life. Bom in
shallow inlets of mountain
streams, salmon spend months to
years in the streams before they
head downstream to live for a few
years free in the vast ocean where
they must avoid the 30-mile long
nets other countries use for fish
harvesting. After they spend time
maturing in the ocean, they head
back up the rivers to the same
spots where they were bom, to lay
eggs and die. A vicious cycle of
Along the way, salmon
must overcome the destruction of
their habitat from developing, for­
estry, hydroelectric plants and
agricultural pollution.
Hydroelectric plants on
the Columbia and Snake Rivers
damage and kill many fish through
the turbines. Warm water from
reservoirs also impacts salmon
with disease that is rampant in the
warmer water. Fish ladders are
only partially successful in allow­
ing fish to get past dams, Close to
ten-percent of the salmon popula­
tion dies every year while migrat­
ing upstream past dams.

provide a steady stream of runoff
of harmful chemicals used in pro­
duction of crops. These chemi­
cals can poison the fish or their
food and habitat.
Fishing by sport-fishers
and commercial industry catches
a very large portion of the salmon.
While most of the fish caught are
hatchery reared, native fish are
caught and die, lowering native
levels further.
Natural predators such
as seals and sea lions follow after
fishing boats and travel far up
rivers for succulent salmon. Seals
are a major problem along the
coast and have been spotted as far
up as downtown Oregon City,
feasting on fish.
Without successful pro­
grams to protect the salmon, runs
will continue to dwindle and the
salmon may become severely en­
