Chase after Sturgeon with your pro-guide Scotty for the short season on the Columbia River. This is not your average fishing trip; you'll be chasing one of the biggest freshwater fish in North America. These "dinosaurs" are huge fighters and are a truly unique species that should be on every angler's hit list. The season is short though! Book you trip now to secure your date! Scotty is an expert when it comes to the Columbia River and surrounding tributaries, so he'll guide you to the best spots. You'll use a variety of lures and bait, depending on the target species, the weather, and the water conditions, but regardless, when that fish is on, get ready for a fight! Sturgeon—which can be six feet long and more than 200 pounds—will tear the line off a reel during a run, and will never clear the water trying to toss the hook. Please be sure to bring your Washington State fishing license, rain gear, water proof boots, proper clothing (Scotty recommends layering) Read More

You'll use a variety of lures and bait, depending on the weather and the water conditions, but regardless, when that fish is on, get ready for a fight!

She's driven by a 90-HP Mercury engine, s you'll get out there smoothly, and has a live well for bait as well as a suite of electronics to help you find fish.
