Photo of the Day

A new Oregon-related photo every weekday from The Oregonian in Portland, Oregon.

  1. Sean Sohappy, 20, and Cheyenne Wahnetah, 19, both of Warm Springs, brave heavy water flows at Willamette Falls to fish for lamprey. The fish hang out in pools below the falls and also climb the rock walls to move up stream. On Friday a couple dozen members of the Warm Springs and Yakama tribes, mostly in their teens and 20s, harvested lamprey. The tribes have treaty rights that allow them to harvest Pacific lamprey. For generations, it’s been an annual tradition — and one the group hopes to keep alive. Photo by Thomas Boyd/The Oregonian
