A U.S. tribe's uphill battle against climate change

''In the fall time we get Coho and King salmon, wintertime right now we're getting steelhead. We used to get sockeye in the springtime that we could fish for but it's been a few years since we've been able to fish for sockeye. Their numbers are so low, so now we are just going to let the run build up. So we haven't been fishing for them,'' Lewis said.
