Well yes it is!!!!! Just got off the line with ODFW and they verified that Sturgeon retention is 7 days a week above the falls (Willamette). Good to know, wish they would make it more clear in the regs.

OK whatever!!!!! I dont want to fight with anybody about it.
guess if you dont get a ticket then cool.

and if you do then guess it is up to the judge.

pretty clear to me that it is closed.

I have been sick, not sure what I got but I feel like crap so I still haven't called them for a third time, but I did send and email out, should have a confirmation email stating it's seven days a week.

In the special regs. It only states the lower willy below the falls for the 3 day retention thing not the upper

It says in the special regs that Sturgeon is limited to three days a weak up to the falls. It says nothing about it above the falls so it fall under general regs which is 7 days a week. It hink that is what he's saying anyways. I haven't had a chance to look again today yet.

Ii is legal to keep them 7 days a week because they are resident fish. Thats what trooper bob told us anyways..... I would still like to see that email....

I was fishing on the channel yesterday, and when I got my boat out there was a state cop. he was checking boats that were hunting and fishing.

I ask him what he thougt about fishing above the falls, he said you can only keep them 3 days a week.


I dont care any more I know if I fish up there I will only keep 3 days a week..

Sturgeon fishing on the channel yeterday was ok I had 3 clients on my boat we got a 45 inch and a 47 inch.... plus some small ones.
