The latest news on charter fishing out of Ilwaco, Washington


The best-kept secret is out. The lower Columbia River (around Ilwaco, Washington) has the world’s best sturgeon fishing.  Catch and release fishing is just as much fun as keeping so book your trip for this season. The sturgeon are big and provide lots of action and excitement.  CALL NOW to reserve.


Catch and keep sturgeon will be announced in our fishing report when Fish and Wildlife gives us those dates.

Please call early as we expect a busy fishing season. Group rates weekdays only until early July. Please call for current pricing.


We have coffee on board. We will supply all rods, reels, tackle, and bait. Trips are based on 8 hours.

All of your fish are kept on ice on our boats throughout your trip and left whole to ensure the quality and freshness of your fish.

When you return to the docks with your fish, the deckhand will take your fish up to be photographed.

We offer a fillet and vacuum-packing service on-site. You may take your fish home whole, filleted, vacuum-packed. Quick freeze and storage are available.
