The fishing season is now open and boats
are being taken up river daily on wagons,
and their owners fish down river to Oregon
City where the fish are transported to Port
land. The pale lace fisherman has taken
the place of the red man whose teepes once
dotted the banks of .the Clackamas river
when the royal chinook were plenty.
We noticed several fishing bouts going up
the river a week before the close season was
up. We think it woulil he a good idea for
the state fish commissioner to appoint a
deputy to watch the Clackamas river for ille
gal processes of fishing.
It is a matter of regret that the last legis
lature did not makethe Clackamas river a
close stream against all comers in behalf ol
the United States fish hatchery. If the sal
mon which are taken out by the boats were
Allowed to ascend to the headwaters of the
Clackamas river it would be ons of the best
locations In the state for a hatchery.
We hope that Mr. Hubbard, superintend
ent of the f nlted Stales lish hatchery, with
the help of State Game Protector McUuIre,
will be successful In removing the Cross
dam which is an impediment to salmon as
cending the stream.
We do not understand why some will per
