posted by Mike on 09/25/2020

Sport white sturgeon retention allowed in the Columbia River, from Wauna powerlines to Bonneville Dam

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

Effective date: Sept. 26, Sept. 29, and Oct. 3, 2020.

Species affected: White sturgeon

Locations: The Columbia River from the Wauna Powerline crossing upstream to the Bonneville Dam, and the Cowlitz River.

Reason for action: The legal-size population is large enough to allow for a limited retention fishery within the lower Columbia River.

Daily white sturgeon limit: One fish

Annual white sturgeon limit: Two fish

Retention of green sturgeon is prohibited.
