Lake Roosevelt white sturgeon: The popular white sturgeon fishery opens daily beginning June 18, until further notice, from Grand Coulee Dam to China Bend Boat Ramp (including the Spokane River from Highway 25 Bridge upstream to 400' below Little Falls Dam, Colville River upstream to Meyers Falls Dam and the Kettle River upstream to Barstow Bridge). A robust sturgeon hatchery program coupled with fish survival has resulted in a surplus of harvestable fish. Be sure to check on specific regulations and harvest limits for this fishery on the WDFW website.
