To all my Fishermen Friends…..
Yes Klo Say, Nyein, Eh Htoo, and Hla Win Kyi, these fish are almost 3 feet long and were just 8 feet from me in the water. They are salmon in the upper Willamette River near Eugene OR. In the picture below you will see one of the fish trying to leap to another level as they have been climbing a fish ladder. These fish were hatched in this area, went out to the ocean for several years and now have come back to spawn another generation and then die. An additional blessing of our vacation, besides seeing family, has been the cool weather here in Oregon, we have worn sweaters in the morning.
