OROVILLE — Colville tribal fishermen set up nets in the Similkameen River near Oroville last week, catching some 70 summer Chinook salmon in two days of fishing. Their fishing method — a beach seine net similar to the purse seine nets they’re using from a boat on the Columbia River near Brewster — is part of the tribe’s larger effort to selectively fish for hatchery salmon while leaving naturally-spawned salmon in the river to return to their spawning grounds.
