HELLS CANYON -- A group of biologists from Idaho Power will likely be bragging about their latest catch for a long time.

The biologists captured a 10 foot long sturgeon in Hells Canyon. The giant fish weighs an estimated 470 pounds.

The female sturgeon was measured, tagged and released as part of a three-year survey of the sturgeon population below Hells Canyon Dam.

The biologists estimate the fish is more than 75 years old.
