Oregon and Washington state fishery managers have approved Chinook and sturgeon seasons.

They added this Saturday to the Lower Columbia River spring Chinook season as well as a 10-day white sturgeon season on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from May 14 through June 4. Boat and bank angling will be allowed from Buoy 10 to the Wauna power lines.

Two adult salmonids are allowed per day, but only one may be a Chinook. Anglers can only keep adipose fin-clipped fish.

Sturgeon angling is prohibited after 2 p.m. Retained fish must be 44 to 50 inches in fork length. The bag limit is one legal-sized fish per day, while the annual sturgeon limit is two per year. Retention of green sturgeon will not be allowed.
