Fishery managers from Oregon and Washington modified the permanent rules for 2023 Columbia River sturgeon retention seasons upstream of Bonneville Dam during a hearing Wednesday. Fisheries in both The Dalles Pool and Bonneville Pool will shift to a three-day-per-week season in 2023, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, similar to the retention season in The Dalles Pool during 2022. Retention will be open on Sunday, Jan. 1 as well. The change is intended to reduce season volatility and help anglers plan fishing trips by extending seasons later into the year. The current 7-day-per-week structure makes it difficult to provide advance notice to anglers about retention closures. The season in the Bonneville Pool will run from January 1 to March 22, and in The Dalles Pool from January 1 to March 4.
