Spring Chinook angling is open to both boat and bank anglers from Buoy 10 at the mouth of the Columbia River upstream to Beacon Rock. Beacon Rock to Bonneville Dam is open to bank angling only.
Effective March 16, spring Chinook angling will be open from Tower Island powerlines upstream to the Oregon/Washington border above McNary Dam, plus the banks between Bonneville Dam and Tower Island powerlines.
White sturgeon retention is closed from Buoy 10 upstream to McNary Dam but remains an option for catch and released fishing.
The McNary Pool is open to the retention of legal white sturgeon through July 31.
Trout anglers continue to do well in Southwest Washington lakes.
