Sockeye fishing will be open, while adult Chinook retention will be banned on the Columbia River in July.

The ban includes the river from the Astoria Bridge to the Bonneville Dam. Bags will still be limited to two fish, according to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Hatchery jack Chinook may still be retained.

Fishery managers agreed on the regulations based on summer returns, which have been lower than expected for Chinook near the Bonneville Dam.
