Last sturgeon retention spot to close Nov. 12October 31, 2013 @ 3:55 pm
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Fishery managers from Oregon and Washington announced that white sturgeon retention fishing will close Nov. 12 on the Columbia River and its tributaries between The Dalles and John Day dams.
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife says the 25-mile stretch of the river is the only remaining portion of the Columbia currently open to sturgeon retention.
Other Columbia River sturgeon fisheries above and below Bonneville Dam closed when preseason harvest quotas were met.
Catch-and-release sturgeon fishing remains open throughout the Columbia.
