Sturgeon retention in Bonneville Pool to re-open four days in July

The Dalles Pool scheduled to close Aug. 1

July 1, 2014

CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Oregon and Washington fishery managers announced today that the Bonneville Pool will re-open for sturgeon retention on July 11-12 and July 18-19.

On these days the mainstem Columbia River from Bonneville Dam to The Dalles Dam will be for the retention of sturgeon between 38-inches and 54-inches fork length.

Sturgeon fishing (retention and catch-and-release) is prohibited in the sturgeon spawning sanctuary from The Dalles Dam downstream 1.8 miles to a line from the east (upstream) dock of the Port of The Dalles boat ramp straight across to a marker on the Washington shore during May 1 through July 31.

For the Dalles Pool and adjacent tributaries, managers announced an Aug. 1 closure based on low catch rates in recent years and a shift in angler effort to fall salmon and steelhead.

The pool will remain open for catch-and-release fishing through the end of the year.
