Sturgeon retention season closes between The Dalles Dam and John Day Dam

Action: The sport fishery for white sturgeon between The Dalles Dam and John Day Dam on the Columbia River will close to retention.
Effective date: 12:01 a.m., July 30, through Dec. 31, 2011.
Species affected: White sturgeon.
Location: The Columbia River and tributaries from The Dalles Dam upstream to John Day Dam.
Reason for action: The closure date for retention of sturgeon was adopted because Washington and Oregon fish managers estimate that the harvest guideline of 300 fish will be reached on July 29, 2011.
Other information: Catch and release of sturgeon will still be allowed in all three pools between Bonneville and McNary dams. The spawning sanctuaries from the Highway 395/I-82 bridge upstream 1.5 miles to McNary Dam and from the Rufus grain elevator upstream 2.4 miles to John Day Dam remain closed to all sturgeon fishing through July 31.
Information contact: (360) 696-6211.
