White Sturgeon Fishing Trips

Sturgeon fishing is available along the entire length of the Columbia River from Astoria/Ilwaco to Bonneville Dam at Cascade Locks/North Bonneville. Limited fishing is also above the dam in the Bonneville and John Day Pools. Sturgeon trips are also offered in lesser know areas like Tillamook Bay and Siletz Bay.

 

White Sturgeon

The Columbia River is home to the largest population of great white sturgeon in the world. The mighty Columbia River offers top quality angling opportunity for sturgeon throughout the year. In May the baitfish begin entering the lower Columbia River with the tides, and by June the Sturgeon fishing is red hot in the Astoria/Ilwaco area.

The lower river is one of the more popular areas as good numbers of keeper size sturgeon caught here each year. The area below Bonneville Dam is also a top spot to hook up with keeper and oversize fish.

 

Oversized Sturgeon (May-August)

Put your muscles to the test. Experience the thrill of fighting a prehistoric sturgeon from 7–14 feet in length and 100 to over 400 pounds. It's hard to imagine just how big and strong these fish are until you have experienced the thrill of winning the battle. You’ll defiantly want to bring your camera along to capture this incredible fish on film along with some of the most spectacular scenery in North America, the Columbia River Gorge. It's Incredible!

 

Keeper Sturgeon (Year-Round)

This trip almost always provides tons of action and is always non stop fun. Keeper Sturgeon range from 42" to 60" though numerous fish are caught under and over that size. Its not uncommon for some clients catch and release over 20 fish a day. These fish provide a tasty white meat that is light on fishy smell. Sturgeon are one of the best eating west coast species. Just ask around. It is also excellent smoked and typically retails for around $14.00 or more per pound.
