Large quantities of species locally called black-fish are still taken annually by the Lake Pomo. The fish are split down the back, and after the removal of backbone, head, and entrails, are hung on pole racks to dry in the sun for about two weeks, after which they are thoroughly cured in smoke-houses.Tule huts are not now seen, the one here shown having been built especially for the occasion.
