The Native people use this fishing wheel to catch the Salmon. The baskets turn in the river and pick up the fish and they slide into a box on the side of the wheel.
I believe only the native people or low income people can do this.
The first day we were here it was moving and we saw the guy who came on his four wheeler with a trailer and unloaded the boat FULL of fish 30 or 40 pounders! He said these are small ones!
