A Few Friday Fun Fotos: A Fluvial Forest?

For our highly irregular Friday Fun Fotos Feature, I offer a Fluvial Forest, and a bit of a mystery. These are Jeffrey Pine trunks, in the middle of the West Walker River in the eastern Sierra Nevada east of Sonora Pass.
Why were these trees growing in the middle of the river, and how did they die??

Speculations are welcome in the comments section!
