Sturgeon fishing finally opened up again last week on the Columbia river... and so we took a couple hours to hit it.
Its been a long time since we've been out after 'gators... and it was a great day!
Pretty warm out still, and a little wet - perfect for fishing.
The water temp was warmer than the air - almost 64*F!
Fishing was a bit slow, but the first fish we connected on was a line-peeler!
The first fish was a keeper! Nice, fat, 48" fish.
We used smelt and squid in various combinations.
And "blue goo" too.
We only ended up landing 4 fish in the 2 hours we fished... a couple of shakers, and another nice keeper that measured 43" at the tail's fork.
A great day with friends back on the mighty Columbia River.
