Recreational fishermen will be able to catch and retain white sturgeon on the Columbia River on Saturday.

The one-day fishery will take place from the Wauna power lines upstream to the fishing deadlines at Bonneville Dam.

The bag limit is one legal-sized white sturgeon for the day and up to two for the year.

A legal-sized sturgeon is defined as measuring 44 to 50 inches from the tip of the nose to the fork in the tail fin with the fish laying on its side on a flat surface and the ruler positioned flat under the fish.
