Lower Columbia estuary sturgeon retention fishery to close after July 4

Here is the state Fish and Wildlife new release on the sturgeon catch and keep fishery in the Lower Columbia estuary.

Sturgeon fishing will remain open until July 4, which originally was supposed to close on July 8. The catch by that time is predicted to be 4,400 fish.

Sturgeon fishing in the estuary has been very good of late, and much better than it had been in past years.

The early closure covers the lower river from Buoy 10 near the Columbia River mouth to 40 miles upstream to the Wauna power lines near Cathlamet.

Sturgeon catch and keep fishing will remain open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only from Wauna to Marker 82, nine miles below Bonneville Dam.
