Bonneville Pool open for sturgeon catch-and-keep fishing

State Fish and Wildlife opened a sturgeon catch-and-keep fishery in Bonneville Pool of the Columbia River through Jan. 19.

The short winter season in the Columbia and tributaries from above Bonneville Dam up to The Dalles Dam will leave enough fish for an additional catch-and-keep fishery later this summer. State Fish and Wildlife managers will meet in March or April to set those dates.

Catch-and-release sturgeon fishing will remain open after Jan. 19 between Bonneville and The Dalles dams.

The Columbia and tributaries between The Dalles and McNary dams is also open for sturgeon catch-and-keep until catch guideline for each reservoir is attained.

Spawning sanctuaries from the Highway 395/I-82 Bridge up to McNary Dam, and from the Rufus Grain Elevator up to John Day Dam will be closed to all sturgeon fishing May 1 through July 31.
