News: Bottomfish biting before wind at weeks end

Sportfishermen on both sides of the border were whacking bottomfish early last week, with limits of both rockfish and lingcod reported out of Brookings and Crescent City.

It was a good week for bottomfish anglers on both sides of the Oregon-California border until windy weather sent anglers back to shore on Thursday and Friday.

Fishing Report: April 19

By Terry Otto, Columbian staff writer

Spring Chinook angling on the Columbia River is 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 at the Columbia River’s mouth upstream to McNary Dam but remains an option for catch and released fishing.
