Lets talk sturgeon fishing.Lets start upriver by the damn.Everybody knows about fishing the deadline.
The water is fast here,And if you have the guts for the heavy water you will find plenty of sturgeon here,Beware of barge traffic.
Now a few miles down the Columbia river to marker 85 which is known as the deadline in the summer.The water is still fast but slower than the deadline.
I like to fish just on the edge of the fishing channel on the Oregon side.
Usually I like to fish with sand shrimp or smelt.There seems to be plenty of fish here,small and monster sturgeon.
Now lets head down the Columbia 20 miles or so In Troutdale.There are some good holes right near the power lines near the sandy river.
These are great to fish in the morning,But it gets a little tuff in the afternoon on a hot day cause lots of boat traffic.
So get your sturgeon early and get out!From Troutdale to Bonneville lots of room to fish sturgeon.
Dont be afraid to move around and find new spots.
Have fun and good luck!!
