It has happened for a third time this summer as another striped bass was caught on the Columbia River, and this one happened way high up on the mighty river.

The latest is a striped bass caught in the Treaty commercial gear above The Dalles Dam on Sept. 6.

A state fisheries sampler saw a dead striped bass weighing about 15 pounds on June 22 in the Columbia near Lyons Park at Woodland.

Another was a 52 pound striped bass landed by a commercial gill-net fishermen in the Columbia Gorge on June 17.

Striped bass are caught in the northern California region, but catches this far north are rarely seen.

In early July 2008, a 40-pound striped bass was caught in the Columbia River Gorge, and a second striper was caught near Deep River on the Washington side of the Columbia.

There were also reports of a striped bass caught in Puget Sound at Holmes Harbor in 1968.
