Columbia River estuary sturgeon catch was good last weekend

The Lower Columbia estuary sturgeon fishery got off to a fairly good start last weekend (May 11-12).

“Pretty good opening weekend on the Washington side,” said Joe Hymer, a state Fish and Wildlife biologist. “Almost a 50/50 chance a sturgeon caught would be legal-size (41-inch minimum fork size length to maximum 54-inch fork length).”

Fish checks

Ilwaco-Fort Canby: One charter boat May 11-12 with seven anglers caught no fish.

Port of Chinook: 11 private boats May 11-12 with 32 anglers caught 10 sturgeon and released seven; one charter boat with five anglers caught one sturgeon and released eight.
