The Dalles, Nez Perce

I am a lifelong fisher and hunter, starting fishing at the age of 12. I have been a fisherman for 40+ years on the Columbia River. My current role and job is to provide for Salmon King Fisheries. My wife, Brigette, and I started Salmon King Fisheries 10 years ago. Our goal is to grow by catching and processing more fish and by increasing education and our restaurant distribution. In 1995 I was one of five people on the first Fish and Wildlife Commission of the Nez Perce Tribe. I worked for the Nez Perce Tribe as a fish tech on the Sturgeon Project in Hell's Canyon from 1995-2000. I am a traditional Native and a ceremonial Fisher and hunter. I love teaching my grandchildren fishing, hunting, and everything that I have learned through life.
