I caught my first sturgeon on Tuesday! I went out with a friend that knows what he's doing and caught my first sturgeon. We were fishing below the dam (not sure exactly where since he drove his boat). In about 6 hours of fishing, we caught a 42", a 38", and about 4 smaller ones. What a great experience!

Salmonman,
Probably few boats up there with it being closed to rentention. That 42incher would taste mighty good. Congrats! Bet it feels good to put another species under the old belt. Now you have to get one of those big 10-12 foot freight trains. That's some power!!!!

It's closed to retention, from Wauna up to Bonneville. But you can catch and release.

Salmonman...I re-read my post and didn't see anywhere that I accused you of anything. Perhaps you need to get a grip and not shout, very impolite and not normal for ifish. :hoboy: :sleep:
