Snake River Sturgeon Fishing Report

SNAKE RIVER STURGEON FISHING ON FIRE!

Our recent trips have yielded some epic action! One trip we were blessed with 7 great hookups, landing 4 giants including a double with a 9′ and an 8’9″. This double was a thrilling ride as one fish decided to run up river and the other down. Once they decided to cooperate, they ended up wrapping up with each other, but the captain and crew were able to free them. It is not easy getting two large fish to the beach for pictures, but we made it happen and were able to make life-long memories for the Phillips family.

The other trip we had a father/son and they were able to reel in 4 monsters (9’1″ , 9’1″, 7’8″ , 7’6″) and broke one off that Captain Travis says was at least as big as the rest, if not bigger.

In between Sturgeon holes we have been stopping and fishing Smallmouth Bass, which has not disappointed. One trip we pulled 30 fish out of one hole and went home with about 25 nice keeper sized bass that were turned into fish tacos.

Asotin County has reached stage 2 so we are able to run full boats.
