Nice Sturgeon, eh?
I loved messing around in Hells Canyon.
Brings a whole new meaning to the term river monsters. Wow! Thanks for posting this, CW. I'm not interested in fishing for sturgeon, but I do appreciate that folks do. Amazing fish.
Top this, Hannah Baron!

How about....they are F&G guys taking measurements for statistics?
I was doing a 'Top to Bottom" rafting run down the Salmon River in Idaho starting up on the Middle Fork by Stanley Idaho and finishing 50 miles above Lewiston Idaho at Heller Bar, a take out on the Snake River. A 3 week trip on the finest river in the US. I was camped down below Riggin's by a huge pool and there was a big sturgeon who was breaching with a huge splash. It was dark and it sounded like a huge log hitting the surface. It was impressive and really made you sit up when it was doing it in the dark. I wish they would outlaw fishing for them on the Snake, a huge prehistoric fish that are rare.
