Sturgeon was caught on the Willamette River just below Oregon City two
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, and 4 dozen beers,
for the 4 guys taking turns at the reeling it in.
Any Sturgeon OVER about five feet has to be released unharmed and cannot
be removed from the water.
They are brood / breeding stock and probably older than most of us.
