Sturgeon catch and keep fishery to close soon in mid-Columbia River

The sport fishery for white sturgeon between Bonneville Dam and The Dalles Dam on the Columbia River will close to catch and keep from Feb. 21 to Dec. 31.

Washington and Oregon fishery managers estimate that the harvest catch guideline of 1,400 fish will be reached by Feb. 20.

Catch and release of sturgeon will still be allowed between Bonneville and The Dalles dams.

The section of the Columbia River and tributaries between The Dalles Dam and McNary Dam remain open to sturgeon retention until catch guidelines for each reservoir are reached.

The spawning sanctuaries from the Highway 395/I-82 bridge upstream to McNary Dam and from the Rufus grain elevator upstream to John Day Dam will be closed to all sturgeon fishing May 1 through July 31.
