  • Sturgeon ranging from 8 to 11 feet (2.5 to 3.5 m) in length are by no means scarce, and can grow to a much larger size.

  • Sturgeon are bottom-feeders. With their projecting wedge shaped snout they stir up the soft bottom, and by means of their sensitive barbells detect shells, crustaceans and small fish, on which they feed. Having no teeth, they are unable to seize larger prey.

Information About Sturgeon

Sturgeon (Acipenser) is a genus of fish, of which some twenty different species are known, from European, Asiatic and North American rivers. They pass a great part of the year in the sea, but periodically ascend large rivers, some in spring to deposit their spawn, others later in the season for some unknown purpose; only a few of the species are exclusively confined to fresh water. No species occur in the tropics or in the southern hemisphere.

In Russia the fisheries are of immense value. Early in summer the fish migrate into the rivers or towards the shores of freshwater lakes in large shoals for breeding purposes. The ova are very small, and so numerous that one female has been calculated to produce about three million in one season. The ova of some species have been observed to hatch within a very few days after exclusion. Probably the growth of the young is very rapid, but we do not know how long the fry remain in fresh water before their first migration to the sea †.

After they have attained maturity their growth appears to be much slower, although continuing for many years. Frederick the Great placed a number of them in the Garder See Lake in Pomerania about 1780; some of these were found to be still alive in 1866. Professor von Baer also states, as the result of direct observations made in Russia, that the Hausen (Acipenser huso) attains to an age of 100 years.

Sturgeon Fishing Guides are booking trips on the Upper & Lower Columbia River, including Buoy 10, Willamette River, Tillamook Bay, Nehalem Bay & Clackamas River for Salmon/Steelhead, Shad & Sturgeon.

We specialize in Oversize sturgeon, these fish range in size from 6 feet to ? and often break the surface of the water to make for an excellent photo. You’ll be fishing with Coast Guard licensed guide Bill Gaither in a 24’ Willie Raptor open sled. All the bait and gear is provided for the species of fish you are going after, with hot coffee and lunch provided.

What techniques they use or what baits and rigs they, what depth of water they fishes in, what colors of lures they use and several other things determine what they will use to catch fish the next day.

Sturgeon fishing guides call friends and competitors to see what has happened and what's going on at hot spots all around the area. Then they factors in everything else they can to determine what they will use the next day. Then they ready their boat and equipment accordingly. THE STEELHEAD, SALMON, STURGEON AND SHAD DON'T STAND A CHANCE!

In countries like England, where few sturgeons are caught, the fish is consumed fresh, the flesh being firmer than that of ordinary fish, well flavored, though somewhat oily. The sturgeon is included as a royal fish in an act of King Edward II, although it probably only rarely graces the royal table of the present period, or even that of the lord mayor of London, who can claim all sturgeons caught in the Thames above London Bridge. Where sturgeons are caught in large quantities, as on the rivers of southern Russia and on the great lakes of North America, their flesh is dried, smoked or salted. The ovaries, which are of large size, are prepared for caviar, for this purpose they are beaten with switches, and then pressed through sieves, leaving the membranous and fibrous tissues in the sieve, whilst the eggs are collected in a tub. The quantity of salt added to them before they are finally packed varies with the season, scarcely any being used at the beginning of winter.
