Lewiston High School senior Sean Schumacher lifts one of about 100 wild B-run steelhead released into the Snake River below Lower Granite Dam on Tuesday. The effort is part of a project involving the Nez Perce Tribe, Columbia River Inter-tribal Fish Commission and the University of Idaho to recondition female steelhead so they can spawn a second time. Schumacher is doing his senior project on steelhead.
