Delta Fishing Charters – Sturgeon

When you’re looking to come face to gills with some of the largest and oldest freshwater fish on the planet, Delta Fishing Charters is at your disposal! Prowl the prolific inshore waters of Richmond, California with Captain Steve Nicholas and you’re up for a memorable fishing adventure.

Go after the prehistoric giant that is White Sturgeon and find out how challenging and rewarding it is to land one. Capt. Steve has spent decades exploring the local fisheries, and nothing excites him more than putting you on the thrilling Sturgeon action.

Striped Bass is another popular catch here, and though smaller, they still provide quite a fight before they’re reeled in.

You’ll need a reliable boat to take you to the most productive grounds, and that’s exactly what your captain’s 23’ Pilothouse is. This vessel comes outfitted with a 250 HP Yamaha engine and is spacious enough to sit up to 5 anglers.

Capt. Steve will provide a variety of top-of-the-line fishing gear for you, as well as lures, live bait, and navigational electronics to show you where your prey hides.

When you come back to shore, your guide will clean and fillet the catch for you. This is only the case if you’ve caught Striped Bass because Sturgeon are strictly catch and release.

Feel free to come with the kids or your best angling friends, and don’t forget to bring your fishing licenses, favorite drinks, and food to keep your energy up.

Delta Fishing Charters will make sure that your fishing trip with them is successful, safe, and above all, fun!

I was introduced to fishing at a very young age and was hooked right away. I've always been drawn to the water, and it was the excitement of catching a big fish that kept me coming back for more. I guess you could say it's in my blood. To be able to do what I love for a living is a dream come true. Now, I enjoy more than anything watching people catching a fish for the first time, landing their personal biggest fish, or seeing a kid get their first fish. I get just as excited when we get a fish on the line today as I did 45 years ago as a kid.
