Or. Admin. R. 635-023-0095 - [Effective until12/31/2022]Sturgeon Season

The 2022 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations provide requirements for the Columbia River Zone and the Snake River Zone. However, additional regulations may be adopted in this rule division from time to time, and, to the extent of any inconsistency, they supersede the 2022 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations.

(1) Effective March 22, retention of white sturgeon is prohibited in the Columbia River and all adjacent tributaries from Bonneville Dam upstream to McNary Dam.
(2) All other permanent rules for the Columbia River Zone, as stated in the 2022 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations, remain in effect.
