Klamath Salmon Pages homepage

Salmon Links

Since the Klamath fish kill of September 2002, there have been many articles published about the river and surrounding issues. Keeping up with them has been a bit overwhelming.

Being a person that likes simplicity, I have chosen to clear out all but the most permanent links to more long-lived information, with emphasis on the voices of the Indigenous people of the Klamath watershed, especially Yurok, Karuk, and Hupa voices. The other stuff can be found elsewhere (try a google search on klamath salmon).

The links on this page are provided as a compliment to the very personal perspective provided on the rest of this site. I wish to focus on the fact that native fish populations are vital to the survival of one of the greatest western rivers and its people.

Anyone who requires additional resources (archived news links) can contact me directly.
