Weekend Fishing Opportunities:

  • White sturgeon retention is open from Bonneville Dam upstream to McNary Dam.  Angling is slow, and we advise that anglers wait for weather conditions to improve before driving to the gorge.
  • White sturgeon retention is closed from Buoy 10 upstream to Bonneville Dam, but remains an option for catch and release fishing.

Current Columbia River regulations for salmon, steelhead, shad and sturgeon can be found at the Sport Fishing Regulation Update page.
