STURGEON FISHING IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST
The Columbia River is home to the largest population of white sturgeon in the world. If a trophy Sturgeon is on your Bucket list, fishing the Columbia River is where you will need to be. Captain Michael will guide his clients through various parts of the Columbia River at different times of the year when each area is open to keep them. From January to mid-April, he will fish over the first and second dams on the Columbia River, which provide excellent sturgeon fishing in late February to mid-April.
LARGEST FRESHWATER FISH IN NORTH AMERICA
White Sturgeon are the largest freshwater fish in the world. They are primarily in North America and can grow up to 15 feet and weigh more than 500 pounds. One does not mistake a sturgeon as a different fish because the primitive fish has large obstetric plates, a long flat nose, and a forked tail. White Sturgeon, considered a prehistoric fish, can live more than 100 years without reaching maturity until 25 years of age.
Catching Sturgeon is a fantastic fishing experience for everyone and makes for a great family holiday. If you are not fighting the fish, the scenery is beautiful, and there are plenty of wild animals.
STURGEON FISHING IN OREGON
The lower Columbia River under the Bonneville Dam, for the first time, has provided us a 6-day season in June with great days to come in September and October. June fishing is located near the mouth of Colombia in Astoria and offers some of the best sturgeon fishing at this time.
