Here is the latest from the Columbia River estuary sturgeon fishery from state Fish and Wildlife:
Including fish released, charter boat anglers averaged a legal per every 4.7 rods while private boat anglers averaged one per every 4.0 rods.
If an angler caught a fish, there was a one in four chance it would be legal size.
Ilwaco-Fort Canby: 21 private boats with 61 anglers caught 14 sturgeon and released 26; 40 charter boats with 405 anglers caught 94 sturgeon and released 339.
Chinook: 42 private boats with 111 anglers caught 25 sturgeon and released 30
Last week anglers in the estuary made 4,100 trips and caught 1,100 sturgeon. The cumulative catch is 2,800 sturgeon or 67-percent of the guideline with two weeks to go.
