The new year will bring new restrictions for Columbia River sturgeon fishermen.

In order to maintain a viable sturgeon population, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife plans to close the river above Bonneville Dam for a portion of the year to anglers who catch and keep the fish.

The exact dates of the closure are to be set by Fish and Wildlife Commission during a meeting Jan. 25.
