The Willamette river offers one of Oregon’s best catch and release Sturgeon fisheries. Willamette River sturgeon fishing guides will tell you that the Willamette is by far their favorite catch and release Sturgeon Fishery. This fishery lasts a long time, while Sturgeon can be caught in the Willamette river year round November through March is the best time to catch them. The Willamette river has lots of deep holes and deep pockets up and down the whole river. These are the areas these giant Sturgeon call home! Catching upwards of 30 fish a day on the Willamette is not uncommon, if you find a good school and they are hungry the fishing is nothing short of amazing. It is a day of fishing that is fun for anyone who enjoys fishing or even just enjoys the outdoors! I would love to take you out and share this awesome fishery with you and your group!
