Fishing Camp Assistant

In 1976, while working as General Manager for Yukon River Tours, I also helped maintain the company's smoked salmon enterprise. Capt. Dick Stevenson had a camp with a smokehouse on an island in the Yukon River, downstream from Dawson City. I assisted in emptying the "salmon wheel" (a river-turned device that caught salmon and channeled them into a floating trap), playing chef at salmon barbeques, etc. (See Riverboat Manager.)
