Re: “Love Me, I'm a Lamprey

I am 75 years old. As a child growing up in Chiloquin, Oregon I saw lampreys in huge round balls hanging onto the side of the Sprague River Dam...We would see them about the same time as the suckers (Tschwam and Gupto) were migrating upstream from Klamath Lake. The Klamath Lake contains the water which passes through several dams in California and forms the Klamath River running south and west to the Pacific Ocean. I have seen a map of Klamath Lake which indicated no outlet!...Does anyone ever source out rivers that run into the Pacific Ocean? They all come from the north, I believe...none flow into any water other than the Pacific Ocean. The mighty Columbia River begins in Canada and flows south through the northwestern United States to the Pacific Ocean. There is an annual lamprey catch at Willamette Falls near Oregon City, Oregon. The man is right...the lampreys suck their way up a barrier to reach their spawning grounds. So that is how the Hyas Tamonowis Tyee (Great Spirit Chief) made them... Thank you.
