The mouth of the Nooksack river and the Lummi Indians of NW Washington are pretty much tied at the hip. Salmon run up the river on their way to spawn and the Lummi’s stretch their nets along the mouth, both for food and commerce. Here, it’s a crisp, cold fall day as the fishermen work at untangling their net. It’s beautiful in the north Puget Sound. The native fishery is a big part of it.
