Don't go fishing... GO CATCHING!

Sturgeon Fishing in Oregon & Washington

Sturgeon fishing is year round fun, from the Willamette River, in the heart of Downtown Portland,Oregon or the Columbia River in the Scenic Columbia River Gorge. Locations vary according to weather and hot fishing action. Sturgeon fishing in the winter or summer we have you covered with a covered and heated boat.

STURGEON are anywhere between 2 feet to 12 foot long.
If you want to have a thrill of a lifetime try fishing for what we call “hog” or “dinosaur” sturgeon!!
These sturgeon can be up to 12 feet long or upwards of 700 pounds.!

We fish for these monster sturgeon in theColumbia River GorgeColumbia River Gorge. The season starts May and goes through September. Imagine having a 700 pound fish jump completely out of the water while being attached to your line. An experience of lifetime. One that Marvin’s Guide Service is happy to help you obtain
