Sturgeon Fishing

We offer Sturgeon fishing trips on the Columbia and Willamette rivers year around. These are extremely fun and active fishing trips great for the whole family and corporate trips. 

We don't get many days a year we can actually keep the sturgeon. So if you want to be able to take one home inquire early so we can get you on the schedule on the keeper days. We typically get some keeper days in the Astoria area in the months of May and June and then get a couple keeper days in September and October further up the Columbia. These keeper seasons change yearly so feel free to check with us for up to date information. 

We offer catch and release trips year around. However the best times are usually March through October. 

In March and April we offer trips out of the Portland area. These are action packed trips with lots of catching and the weather is usually getting nice. 

May, June and July we offer both keeper days and catch and release days out of Astoria. This is by far the best time to fish this area. These fish are fresh and extremely hard fighting. A lot of the fish we catch are in shallow water which offers a great fight. These fish will run from 2' long up to 10' long. This is a fishery that is truly world class. 

 

We fish Oversize Sturgeon up around The Dalles in the summer months. With this we are targeting fish from 6' long up to 10' to 12' long. Most people are simply amazed we have such huge fish right here in the Columbia River. For this we use heavy gear and you can be prepared for up to a hour long fight. 

 

The rest of the year we offer sturgeon trips on both the Willamette and Columbia rivers.
