Tips for Fishing Sturgeon on The Columbia River
Captain Don fishes the Columbia River from Portland to The Dalles. Sturgeon fishing on the Columbia river is strictly catch and release except for a small window where a limited quantity can be kept within a slot limit. Since sturgeon is catch and release, make sure you bring your camera to take plenty of pictures. During the summer months prepare for hot weather and plan on jumping in the river to get the perfect picture with your monster fish.
