DamNation: Tribe to fish for salmon on Elwha River

A free-flowing Elwha River in winter, Olympic National Park, Washington.

Nearly a decade after the last Elwha River dam came down, the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe could see its first fishery on the river in years.

The tribe, Olympic National Park, and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced Monday that the tribal ceremonial and subsistence fishery for coho salmon on the Elwha will open this fall.
