Managers Recommend Extending Columbia Sturgeon 6 Days

With 4,100 sturgeon still available for harvest, Oregon and Washington managers today recommended extending the season six more days in the Lower Columbia River below the Wauna powerlines.

Managers say only 11,400 of the 15,529-fish quota were caught in June and early July. However, even with the extra six days, they say 1,100 or so sturgeon in the quota will go uncaught.

Fishing will be open July 10-12 and July 17-19.
