Sturgeon fishing typically takes place in March in the Sacramento River Delta around Colusa, Knight’s Landing, and Verona.
These prehistoric monsters of the deep are just amazing. Typically ranging from 4 to 7 feet long, they are strong fighters and great table fare. Heated boats offer a comfortable fishing platform while waiting for a bite from one of these big armored fish.
Overnight trips are available, and include barbecue dinners and breakfast.
Cost: All guided fishing trips are full day trips and cost $225 per person (overnight trips may be more). This includes all rods, tackle, safety equipment, fish cleaning and a knowledgeable professional fishing guide.
