  • An article that was posted recently stated no salmon this year, a first in the history of the festival.

    • Salmon fest, but no salmon. Kiya kitchen’s memorial today. God bless her soul. Almost 3 weeks, nice going marci.😤 You rotten bitch.

      • Not the right place for your post..
        But that the cops have no arrest says it all..
        I’m sure Marci is in hell right now herself… But if you knew her you knew something bad was most likely going to happen.. of you were her friend..I hope you told her..I did..
        But I no longer live there.. The salmon story is in my neck of the woods… I’ve had weeks of nightmares..
        So please remember.. Her actions hurt allot of people.. and some of us wish we could hide like she is trying… None of us will succeed…
        Best we can do is ask why the cops missed a jeep about six houses from the scene.. was she selling their pot also?

    The one with no salmon?
    Take down the dams now!!!

  • I used to go, back in the early days when I worked in the woods with many Native Americans. Wonderful generous people who had great respect for the land and the resources. It was an honor to attend, but it’s been many years ago now.

  • So has anyone given a scientific reason for the low run of salmon?
