OLYMPIA – The white sturgeon fishery opens Jan. 1 for some the lower Columbia River.
Fishing for legal-size white sturgeon opens New Year’s Day in Bonneville Pool between Bonneville and The Dalles dams, The Dalles Pool between The Dalles and John Day dams, and the John Day Pool between John Day and McNary dams.
While Bonneville Pool and John Day Pool will be open daily, The Dalles Pool only on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, officials said.
The Dalles Pool closed to sturgeon retention just a few days after opening in 2021, due in part to the opener falling on a long holiday weekend...
