We had the great fortune yesterday to spend a wonderful day on the Snake River near Heller Bar chasing oversize catch and release sturgeon and small mouth bass. Both the sturgeon and bass fishing can be fantastic this time of year and spending warm late spring days in the canyon is a real treat. We landed a total of 4 sturgeon with one being a very nice 6 foot fish that gave everyone in the family a chance to try to pull him in. We also put a whacking on the prolific bass in the area. I think our total for the day was close to 50 fish landed. Most of these bass are on the smaller side ranging from 6-12 inches, but the action is non stop.
The Sturgeon and Bass fishing will remain very good for the next few months and we will be out chasing them. We also offer a chance at keeper sturgeon on the Columbia River in the Hanford Reach. If you are looking for a fantastic dedicated sturgeon trip I really recommend fishing this area with us.
