STURGEON

Sturgeon Fishing

At Tri City Guide Service the White Sturgeon is a very special fish, I started my guide service in 2003 targeting these monsters and is my absolute favorite fish to guide anglers to. Historically living over 100 years old and growing upwards of 1000lbs it is a true trophy to catch on rod/reel and there is no better place than the Tri Cities area of the Columbia River to catch one. Captain Chris specializes in hunting the large oversize sturgeon 6-12+ feet in length weighing 100-600+ pounds. Smaller shaker sturgeon are usually caught throughout the day but it is not uncommon for the majority of the trip to be spent battling oversize fish during peak oversize season May-December.

You may have heard stories that giant sturgeon are the fish of a thousand hours which is not true and Tri City Guide Service prides itself in a near 100% success record on guided oversize sturgeon fishing trips with most days landing multiple fish ranging 6-12 feet in length. Captain Chris challenges you to try and beat his boat record of 11 oversize fish landed to the boat in one 8 hour day, that’s well over 2000lbs and 80+ feet of fish! Hundreds of anglers from around the world have caught the biggest fish of their lives with Tri City Guide Service since 2003, think you’ve got what it takes?

Sturgeon fishing is open year round for catch and release with retention of keeper size sturgeon 43-54 inches being a short quota fishery beginning January 1st.  Tri City Guide Service offers your choice of the Mid Columbia River or Scenic Hanford Reach stretch of the Columbia River, both sections have healthy populations of sturgeon so stretch those arms out and be ready for battle!  Peak oversize season is May-December and is recommended to book well in advance for best availability.  Don’t forget to ask about sturgeon combo trips with Salmon, Walleye, Shad and Smallmouth bass being great options for a fishing trip of a lifetime.

WARNING: Sturgeon fishing can be addictive! Once you’ve experienced the screaming runs and tail walking jumps of an oversize sturgeon there is no other fight in North America that can compare. Sturgeon are very strong fish that require heavy saltwater rods and reels loaded with 100lb test line, fighting belts and fighting chair is available and anyone not up to a strenuous battle between man and fish may need assistance which Captain Chris will happily provide. All age groups even handicap anglers can be accommodated with Tri City Guide Service. It is recommended that you have at least one physically strong angler in the boat on all sturgeon trips.
