Bonneville pool sturgeon — This is kind of a target-gone-by post, but here are the numbers from the June 15-16 and June 22-23 sturgeon season in the Bonneville pool of the Columbia River.

Anglers caught 940 sturgeon in the winter portion of the season between Jan. 1 and mid-February.

On June 15-16, the catch was 508 sturgeon retained. On June 22-23, anglers retained 388 sturgeon. The average catch for the four days was 224 fish.

There are 164 left on the allocation guideline, too few to allow for an additional day of retention.
