Sturgeon Fishing on the Willamette River

Sturgeon fishing opened back up on the Willamette River, so I headed out on my Klamath boat with my buddy Tyler before sunrise. We put in at Meldrum Bar which was a zoo. It was worth it through. We had lots of action and between two boats and 4 guys we landed three keepers by early afternoon. The bite was hot for awhile on smelt, but then died by about 10 AM. The picture below is the 39" keeper I landed.
