I've never fished for sturgeon on the Willamette around Portland. Where would be a good place to start if I launched by St. John's Bridge?

I would look for transition areas that hit in the 50,s on the sides of those deep holes this time of year... you may catch only one fish all day, but the odds of it being a keeper are substantialy higher
