Sturgeon are the giants of the Pacific Northwest. They range anywhere from 6 inches to 14 feet in length. Fresh Sturgeon are continuously coming in from the Pacific Ocean, following the Eel, Shad, Salmon, Steelhead and Smelt.

Pauline releases an 8' oversize Sturgeon above.
Keeper sturgeon are 38 inches to 54 inches in length and offer a tremendous battle as well as excellent table fare. The oversize sturgeon offer a lifetime of memories. In the summer as the water warms these fish get very aggressive in all aspects. They bite hard, fight hard and run really hard. It is not uncommon to land 5 to 10 oversize Sturgeon each trip.
