January 18th Retention Sturgeon

It was a day of looking for the Columbia River white sturgeon. It is retention season in the John Day pool and the quota has not been met yet. Todays clients have never caught a Columbia River  sturgeon and we were hoping to make that change today. We did not get the one we were looking for so they could take one home but we did land a couple with the biggest one measuring just over 9 feet.
