Puyallup Tribe member Siab McCloud steers his 20-foot Lowe boat away from tree branches along the high-water bank of the Puyallup River in Puyallup on Monday. The chum salmon fishing wasn’t good as the run was probably at its peak two weeks ago when the river flooded and the water was much higher. During that time it was too dangerous to fish. If the water level gets much higher, Puyallup tribe members say they may have to stop fishing again.
