Weekend Fishing Opportunities:
- Steelhead angling is fair in the John Day Arm.
- White sturgeon retention is closed 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.
The salmonid creel program on the lower Columbia has ended for the year and will resume February of 2015.
John Day Pool (Columbia River above John Day Dam and John Day Arm):
Weekly checking showed six adipose fin-clipped steelhead kept, plus 14 unclipped steelhead released for 14 boats.
A hearing is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Thursday, December 18, 2014 (via teleconference) to consider recreational sturgeon retention fisheries in Bonneville Pool.
Catch-and-release only. No report
