STURGEON FISHERY APPROVED BY WDFW

posted by Mike on 08/29/2018

Sturgeon retention season set in the Columbia River
upstream from Wauna powerlines to Bonneville Dam

Action: Allows a limited white sturgeon retention fishery in the Lower Columbia River. White sturgeon from 44-inches minimum to 50-inches maximum fork length may be retained.

Effective dates: Saturdays, September 15 and 22, 2018.

Species affected: White sturgeon.

Locations: The Columbia River from the Wauna powerlines to Bonneville Dam and all adjacent Washington tributaries.

Reason for action: Increased legal-size population over the past few years allows for a conservative retention fishery within the lower Columbia River.

Other information: Catch-and-release fishing for sturgeon will continue to be allowed on all non-retention days.

  • Daily white sturgeon limit: One fish
  • Annual white sturgeon limit: Two fish
  • Retention of green sturgeon is prohibited.

Information contact: Region 5 office; 360-696-6211
