Central regulations, Columbia River

The regs for bass read:

Lakes: Open all year.

Streams: Open
during trout, salmon
or steelhead seasons
only, except portions
of Columbia River
tributaries flooded by
Bonneville and The
Dalles dams are open all year.

How far do those dams flood though? If I'm fishing back water areas along I84 around Hood River and further up near the Deschutes, is this ok?

Thanks in advance
