Here is the sturgeon, bass and walleye fishing report as reported by state Fish and Wildlife:
In the Lower Columbia mainstem from the mouth upstream to Wauna powerlines the catch-and-keep fishery in the estuary ended with a bang for boat anglers.
Nearly all the charter boat anglers kept their one fish daily limit, and private boat anglers averaged a legal kept/released per every 2.6 rods. If an angler caught a fish, there was about a 40-percent chance it was of legal size.
In the Lower Columbia mainstem from the Wauna powerlines upstream to the Navigation Marker 82 line state Fish and Wildlife sampled legals kept by bank and boat anglers from Kalama to Longview. Slow elsewhere.
The entire mainstem Columbia from the mouth to Chief Joseph Dam is now catch-and-release only for sturgeon. Only the area from the Wauna powerlines to Bonneville Dam will re-open for catch-and-keep fishing. In that area, white sturgeon may be retained Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays only beginning Oct. 8.
In the Lower Columbia mainstem below Bonneville Dam some walleye were kept by boat anglers in the Camas/Washougal to Vancouver area.
In The Dalles Pool boat anglers averaged over three walleye and 10 bass per rod when including fish released this past week. Bank anglers were catching some bass.
