Since the river was renamed it has attracted millions of anglers from various countries of the world. The river is home to vast populations of the mighty Sturgeon and Salmon, but sporting fishermen also come in search of the other species of fish that inhabit the mighty Columbia.

The fishing season officially begins from Memorial Day and continues through the month of June. This is the time of the year the American Shad, known as the "poor mans Salmon" are on the run - or running as it is known. The Shad is believed to be on of the world's best gaming fish. This is because it is one of the fish that can put up quite a fight when the angler tries to land it after hooking it. Anglers can hook and land as many as forty Shad in a single day from the Columbia river.

The best bait to lure the Sturgeon fish include; sand shrimp, smelt and anchovies. The Shad has acquired a reputation of being the most difficult fish to land. It is capable of putting up quite a fight when it is hooked, and most of the time it manages to get away even if it means tearing its mouth where the hook is lodged. The Sturgeon can weigh in at as much as 40 pounds and measure over 5 feet long. It is no wonder that the anger had best be strapped to his seat when reeling this giant. You will have a better chance of hooking your Sturgeon trophy if you plan a fishing trip from May through June any year.
