The Seattle Times led its outdoor sports column on March 2 with the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe’s carcass project.

From The Times:

Almost 100 years ago the Elwha River on the northern Olympic Coast had wild chinook salmon topping 100 pounds.

Then came the modern industrial era, and in 1913 this once pristine river that hosted all five salmon species was blocked by the first of two hydroelectric dams, leaving no path for fish migration to the upper 38 miles of mainstem and more than 30 miles of tributary habitat.
