No Sturgeon here in CA...at least it's far and few between. Not like up there :lol::D

I fished your area last June on the Columbia and had a blast. I can't wait to get back up there for more Sturgeon fishing ;)

I have heard that the Sacramento River has a good population of White Sturgeon. Is this false?

Yes they're here but not as abundant as up there. IMO they're harder to catch due to their very light tap..you only have a split second to set the hooks otherwise they're gone oppose to a hard hit that's up there.
