Hi All,

I am going Sturgeon fishing for first time tomorrow morning :smile: What I want to know is: There any salmon fishing still going on there? If so, how do you fish for them (I have never fished Columbia, or Willamette for that matter, for salmon). I ask as I was assigned the duty of finding this information out by the boat captain in case the Sturgeon fishing is really slow. Afraid I have been derelict in my duties while I chased deer around to no avail. :blush:

Any and all info greatly appreciated!

Stay with the sturgeon. There will be no lack of bites or action. Find 65 to 70 ft of water and anchor with 2 to 250 ft of rope, sea anchors and have a blast. Take smelt, sand shrimp and sturgeon feast.

Hi All,

Thank you for the info! We caught 12 shakers, no keepers. Had a big one on that took line like crazy (reel was screaming!) then wrapped the line around something down there and broke off. At least we had some action :smile:
