The Columbia River Compact agencies of Oregon and Washington have adopted two commercial salmon fishing periods that will run from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m. Wednesday and from 7 p.m. July 1 to 5 a.m. July 2 from the mouth of the Columbia River to just below Bonneville Dam.

Allowable catch will include chinook and coho salmon, white sturgeon and shad. Gear is restricted to an 8-inch minimum mesh size and sanctuaries are in effect.

All sockeye, steelhead and green sturgeon must be released immediately. A maximum of five white sturgeon may be possessed or sold by each participating vessel during each calendar week, Sunday through Saturday.
