Monday evening one of the largest
salmon of the season was caught near
Oregon City. On being placed upon the
scale-, its weight, was registered at 46
pounds. Those being cangbt now are of
the spring varietv and are ou their way
to the upper wa era of the Clackamas
river there to spawn. The Clackamas
river is one of the few rvers of Oregon
in which the spring salmon enters in
numbers and is perhaps the only one
that is holding its own in regard to the
number entering it. The credit, for this
mut be given to the State Hatchery
located some sixty miles above the
junction of the Clackamas with the Wil
lamette. It is hoped that the Govern
ment will again take uo the question of
propagating the fall salmon which are
of questionable value. The Biicceas of
artificial propagation is no longer a de
batable question. The question now. is
the choi e of the beBt varieties.
