Watch: Local news reporters discuss lamprey harvest, development at Willamette Falls
Raymond Rendleman, news editor for the Clackamas Review/Oregon City News, interviewed Patrick Malee, West Linn Tidings reporter, about recent visits by tribes to Willamette Falls.
Umatilla, Yakama, Nez Perce and Warm Springs tribes recently fished for lamprey at Willamette Falls, one of the only places in the world where they can find an abundance of the eel-like species that has been around for about 450 million years.
Previously the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission toured the former Blue Heron paper mill, where the Metro regional government, Oregon City and other public partners are planning a new public walkway next to a potential private development on the 23-acre site.
