Statewide Regulations:

The annual sturgeon bag limit will drop from 10 to five fish per year, which will lengthen the retention periods and spread out the catch among anglers in the Columbia River. The rule was adopted statewide for consistency among angling zones and because most sturgeon are harvested from the Columbia River in Oregon.
The definition for ‘fin-clip’ will change to "a healed scar where a fish fin has been clipped." The new rule will allow anglers to legally harvest hatchery-bred fish with partial fin clips. In most fisheries, nearly all of the hatchery fish have a fin clip to distinguish them from naturally produced fish.
