Nice fish.

I love the taste of smallmouth, but I would be hesitant to eat any of the big ones near the Bonneville to Ruckel Creek warning area. Apparently there was some transformers with lots of PCB's dumped in the river some time back and the recommendations is to not eat any resident fish from that area. Cascade Locks seems like it is pretty close to that contamination.

Here is the health advisory with a map...

https://public.health.oregon.gov/Hea...onneville.aspx

I am not sure if any of the resident bass from that contaminated area would ever swim a few miles up stream to Cascade Locks. It sure seems like sturgeon would move all around the Bonneville pool. Also, it seems like it is what the bass eat that probably contribute to the PCB's in their flesh. I wonder if crawdads move much.

It sure would be nice if there was a way for the average joe to test fish for mercury, pcb and dioxin content before consumption.

About the best thing you can do would be sure to trim the belly fat and a bit of the meat that is under the skin. That apparently is where most of the toxins accumulate in the fish.

Your information is correct. High concentrations of PCB's were identified above Bonneville Dam. The area used as an underwater dump was on the upstream side of the spillway on the north shore of Bradford Island (I think the main island where the offices and visitor center are located is Bradford, anyway, that is where the dump is).

I don't think eating a couple smallies from the columbia will hurt you. Nice fish too they probably ate well.
