The Dalles Pool gets more days next month for sturgeon catch and keep fishing

The Columbia River sturgeon retention fishery in The Dalles Pool has been extended after state Fish and Wildlife reports that 140 remain in the catch guideline of 300 fish.

The scheduled closure date was July 31, but fishing will remain open daily Aug. 1-4. Then starting Aug. 5 until further notice, catch-and-keep sturgeon fishing will be allowed Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays only.

This includes the Columbia River and tributaries from The Dalles Dam upstream to John Day Dam.

Daily limit is one white sturgeon between 43 to 54 inches in fork length.
