Raven and his two companions were fishing in a canoe. They had traveled further out in the water then they had ever gone before. Soon, they were engulfed by a dense fog. The fog was so thick that the trio did not recognize where they were. Suddenly, a beautiful appeared on the bow of their canoe. "I will show you the way to my village." She said. Naturally, Raven and the two men followed her. After a short time, Raven fell in love with Fog Woman and they married. They were very happy until a food shortage befell the village. Everyone was short of food except Fog Woman, who always had plenty of salmon in her cooking pot. Being a very curious creature, Raven follows Fog Woman to the creek. There he witnesses her swirl her fingers in the water and out would jump beautiful salmon right into her cedar. He asks her how this could be, but she won't tell him. Raven grumbles and returns to the village. Again, Raven asks how she produces the salmon. She refuses to tell him. This time Raven says, "If you won't tell me then be gone!" At this she turns into fog and rolls out to sea calling to him. I will appear to you only as fog, but I will return salmon to the streams each year so you and the streams each year so you and the villagers will have plenty of food to eat." That is how we get salmon and fog today.
