The Dalles Reservoir closes to sturgeon retention on July 30
July 21, 2011


Clackamas, Ore. -- Oregon and Washington fishery managers today announced the closure of sturgeon retention in The Dalles Reservoir of the Columbia River effective 12:01 a.m. Saturday, July 30, 2011.

The 2011 white sturgeon harvest quota for this reservoir is 300 fish, which managers predict will be caught as of July 29.

In other areas of the upper Columbia River, the Bonneville Reservoir closed to retention on July 9 and the John Day Reservoir closed on April 10.

All three reservoirs remain open for catch-and-release fishing for white sturgeon through the end of the year. Anglers are reminded that sturgeon spawning sanctuaries exist immediately downstream of both John Day and McNary dams as described on page 96 of the 2011 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.  Fishing for sturgeon is prohibited in these sanctuaries through July 31.
