Oregon and Washington adopt 2007 Columbia River sturgeon sport fishing season
by Bend Weekly News Sources

The states of Oregon and Washington adopted 2007 Columbia River sturgeon sport fishing regulations yesterday during a Columbia River Compact meeting.

“The Columbia River sturgeon population is stable based on recent stock surveys, so fishery managers adopted a season similar to last year,” said John North, ODFW Columbia River fisheries program manager.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2007 the following rules will be in effect in addition to the permanent rules printed in the 2007 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

Additional modifications to the Columbia River sturgeon recreational fishery above Wauna Powerlines will be considered for adoption at the Compact’s Jan. 25 meeting.

Effective Jan. 1, 2007, retention of green sturgeon is prohibited in Columbia River recreational fisheries. Green sturgeon were listed for protection under the federal Endangered Species Act during summer 2006.
