The article presents a historical overview of the Columbia/Snake River Basin in the U.S. During the pre-European settlement, the area produces between 10 million and 16 million salmon, making it the most bountiful salmon spawning ground in the world. The Bonneville Dam is the first major dam on the Columbia River. Fishermen visit the Indian fishing grounds at Celilo Falls on the river. The construction of the four lower Snake River dams has made Lewiston, Idaho a port. The port has enhanced the transportation of goods in the region.
