This Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River just below Oregon City two weeks ago. It weighed out at over 1,000 lbs and measured out at 11’1″. It was 56″ around the girth and took over 6 and a half hours for the 4 guys taking turns at the reeling it in. This sturgeon is still alive, just worn out from the fight. They turned him loose after the photo.
