SPORTS EXPO PREVIEW VOL.39 • ISS. 2 Call Dan Ponciano For Sacramento River Stripers & Columbia River Sturgeon! D an Ponciano has 40 years of experience and has been offering Columbia and Sacra- mento River Guided Fishing Trips professionally nearly 30 years. Sacramento River Spring Stripers “March, April and May means striped bass fishing in California’s Sacramento River. This striper fishery in California very well could be the best fishing on the West Coast. While stripers can be fished year-round, we target them during the prime spring months. Striped bass ranging in size from two- to 50-pounds are caught. Every day, someone, somewhere on the Sacramento River will likely catch a 25- to 35-pound striped bass, and that someone could be you,” says Dan. Columbia River Sturgeon “As a Columbia River Fishing guide I target keeper sized sturgeon in the lower Columbia River, near Astoria, Oregon, up to the Columbia River Gorge. I also fish for sturgeon on Oregon’s Willamette River,” Dan related. Cal Kellogg On Sturgeon Fishing With Dan Ponciano “Fishing the Willamette River with Dan was a game changer. I’d caught my share of sturgeon in California, but I wasn’t ready for the sheer number of biting fish we encountered in Oregon. We literally brought 50 plus sturgeon to the boat that ranged from 30 to 72 inches. I personally landed and released 10 California size keepers by lunchtime. If you really want to experience sturgeon fishing, don’t hesitate to jump board Dan’s boat, he is a true professional and lots of fun to fish with,” said Kellogg.
