Vintage film search

Really reaching with this request...wondering if anyone knows if a vintage salmon or steelhead film exists that looked at the life cycle of these fish. Must be black and white, bonus if there is classic standard 1950s voice-over narration. I'd like to include some clips in a documentary in the works.

Thank you in advance for any leads.

This is probably not vintage enough for you, and not black and white, but Hugh Falcus' documentary "salmo the leaper" (1977) has a good bit of the life cycle. The whole thing is on YouTube and other places. Hugh Falcus was a nature documentarian before he was a famous spey guy. While this is not black and white it does radiate a very pre-Attenborough, pre-cable BBC vibe from days gone by. . I recall seeing in many places old pre-war footage of guys catching Atlantic salmon (for example snippets in the "lost world of mr hardy" a recent documentary) but don't remember anything that treated the life cycle of the salmon, or salmon as anything other than as an object of predation. I bet Haig Brown and Falcus would both make good voice overs. I could always make my ex crack up doing my attenborough imitation, and I bet there are some good bit you could pilfer from him somewhere. I'd love to hear more answers to your question.
