Some sturgeon hooked in the Lower Columbia River

In the Lower Columbia from the Navigation Marker 82 line downstream no sturgeon creel data from the estuary is currently available.

State Fish and Wildlife sampled some legal-size kept by boat anglers in the Camas, Longview, and Cathlamet areas.

Sturgeon retention was allowed from the mouth upstream to the sturgeon spawning sanctuary boundary (navigation marker 82 line) on Saturday.

There were 84 private boats and 5 charters plus 8 bank anglers counted during the effort flight count that day. About two-thirds of the private boats were found from the Wauna powerlines downstream.

The Dalles Pool – No effort observed for sturgeon last week.
