Lower Columbia River sturgeon fishery to remain open

The sturgeon fishery in the Lower Columbia River will stay open for now.

State fisheries mangers determined the fishery can continue through Nov. 20, and potentially through the remainder of the season based on the updated catch data.

Last week, less than 100 legal sturgeon were estimated caught by sport anglers.

In the lower river below Bonneville Dam, 363 bank anglers caught 21 sturgeon and released 56; and 17 boats with 36 anglers caught one sturgeon and released 65.
