Columbia River Sturgeon


The Columbia River holds all kinds of different fish. Whether your a beginner or a pro, the Columbia River offers all kinds of fishing opportunities.

First of all, the Columbia is known for the salmon runs, we have spring salmon, summer salmon, and the big run of fall salmon.  Of course, the world famous Buoy 10 salmon fishery at the mouth of the river genarly opens on August 1.

Or maybe you just like Steelhead fishing, well then the Columbia River Gorge has some of the best steelhead fishing around; you can fish from a boat or off the bank. Bonneville dam is a very popular place to fish from the shore for salmon, sturgeon,and steelhead.

There are plenty of Walleye to be found on the Columbia River, and experts say the next record Walleye should come out of the lower Columbia River. I plan on catching that Walleye! I do most of my walleye fishing in the Columbia River gorge near Ruffus,Rufus Oregon fishing in the spring.

Now the monster fish, one of Marvin’s Guide Service’s favorite fish on the Columbia River, is the White Sturgeon. However, most sturgeon fishing is catch and release.
The Columbia  holds sturgeons over 12 feet long and upwards of 900 pounds.

Bass, crappie, and catfish are just a few more to name. Maybe you want lots of action, and then Columbia River shad fishing in May and June will offer lots of fast-action fishing.

Shad fishing is great for kids, because of the fast, action-packed fishing. Feel free to call me, let’s talk fishing, and book your guided trip today. 503-314-5087
