Featured on National Geographic Channel’s “Fish Warrior,” Great River Fishing Adventures trips impart conservation-oriented aquatic expertise to customers at all levels of fish-apprehending savvy. Clients travel local in a vessel from the company’s fleet of 20 custom-welded river jet boats, equipped with fishing gear and tackle that tempts aquatic creatures even as it misleads football players. Celebrated local anglers lead each trip, teaching fly-fishing basics along with proper catch-and-release technique to ensure that snagged steelhead return to the river unharmed. On four-hour steelhead trips, customers voyage in groups of three, hoping to hook a fish so elusive and prone to haunting wrongdoers that it is sometimes called the “grey ghost.” As clients fly-fish from shore spots, mindful eyes can glimpse eagles, bears, and woodland nudists.

Sturgeon and trout trips boast a 99% catch rate for the sturgeon, a living dinosaur that has existed for millions of years. Groups of four fisherpeople prowl the water, catching sturgeon from the boat with conventional bait, then tagging, scanning, and releasing them as part of Great River Fishing Adventures’ monitoring program, which has so far procured data from almost 46,000 white sturgeon. At strategic shore locations, clients also tempt trout with fin-size compliments and fly-equipped lines. Participants in both trips should sport rain-appropriate gear and shoes with good traction.

Great River Fishing Adventures

Fossil records suggest white sturgeon have been dwelling on rocky river bottoms for more than 200 million years. They bear armored plates rather than scales, and according to the guides at Great River Fishing Adventures, they fight like "a cross between a marlin and a freight train."

Having tagged a record-length sturgeon at 3.8 metres, the team has attracted several notable anglers, including Jeremy Wade of Discovery Channel's River Monsters and Jakub Vágner of National Geographic Channel's Fish Warrior. They specialize in tracking down the prehistoric river monsters, then catching them to aid in the species' fight for survival. Since 1995, expert anglers and envious goldfish have collected data from more than 90,000 sturgeons as part of an active monitoring program. They regularly lead groups on fishing trips to share the thrill of reeling in the fish while demonstrating proper catch-and-release techniques to keep the fish population flourishing.

Great River Fishing Adventures supplies all necessary equipment for each fishing trip. They also lead excursions to track down steelhead, trout, and Bobby Fischer's pawn lure.
