Can anyone tell me if I can fish for Sturgeon this weekend between 205 and the Sandy River? My Niece and Nephew want me to take them Tomorrow. The Regs are confusing but i think from odfw's website for new releases it is closed till May 22nd. Thanks for any input?

I think it is still open for retention, but only on retention days. I believe they are thursday, Friday, and Saturday. So if you go tommarrow you could still do catch and release, just can't keep them.

it's really confusing because if you look at the regs it states from Bouy 10 to the Wauna powelines its open 7 days a week and from Wauna powerlines to Bonneville it is Thursday, Friday, and saturday only. When I talked to ODFW yesterday he said it was open 7 days a week but the website contradicts what he said. The Heck with it I think I will just go Steelhead and bass fishing.

Yeah, the regulations are pretty confusing, and some of the people picking up the phones don't even know wat they are talking about. So my advice is, unless you get good info, which you will from other fellow offers, about the regulations, just go for the bass and steelies.

Tight lines!

Is the ferry in salem? Brooks to be exact that cross to west salem. There are plenty of suckers and squaws here, but i could be wrong about sturgeon. If there are sturgeons i would love to fish here as it is close to my home.
