Sturgeon Fishing Techniques

Learn the best sturgeon fishing techniques

One of the most important lessons Jason’s grandfather ever passed on to him was the joy of shared knowledge. Sturgeon fishing in Oregon isn’t as fun without friends, and we’ll teach you all the skills necessary to reel in a prize fish. As your Oregon sturgeon fishing guide, Jason will show you how to catch sturgeon like a professional.

Catch the biggest Oregon Sturgeons

Sturgeons are finicky fish. Depending on the water temperature, time of day, and area they may only be interested in a particular type of food. Jason knows these fish better than anyone. That’s why our sturgeon fishing charters frequently catch some of the largest sturgeon on the river.

With sturgeon’s frequently growing from 4 to 6 feet and weighing an average of 40 to 100 lbs when fully matured, they put up quite the fight. Older sturgeon can weight in excess of 400 lbs and grow to more than 9 feet.
