Sturgeon Excursions

The Dalles Marina
The Dalles OR, United States

Sturgeon Excursions invites you on specialized Sturgeon fishing trips on the Columbia River in The Dalles, Oregon. This area is world famous for Sturgeon fishing as it has a healthy population of the species and expert guides. Your guide will be Captain Darrell Axtell who has fished these waters for a long time and knows the best techniques of hooking a Sturgeon.

Captain Darrell will get you on the keepers or the oversized 7-14ft monsters and provide you with one of the best fishing trips of your life. He is a kind and fun person whose goal is for you to have a productive fishing adventure.

You will go out on a 23-foot North River aluminum fishing boat, which was built in 2016. The new beauty is powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and is reliable on the water. The boat is fully equipped with the necessary safety equipment such as life jackets and your captain is CPR-certified.

The boat features a GPS and fishfinder that will both help you get to the best and most productive spots. You will use the on board provided fishing gear in the form of rods, reels, tackle, and lures which have proved to be very efficient in attracting Sturgeon.

Sturgeon Excursions will advise you if you are allowed to keep the Sturgeon you catch based upon regulations for the period and the slot. The charter is very child-friendly so bring the kids along for a fun day of bonding and learning about this magnificent fish.
