Swan Island/Gilbert River fishable?

I was thinking about trying some sturgeon fishing tomorrow at either swan island or the gilbert river. Have water levels dropped enough by now or is it still a waste of time?

I was also wondering if it was legal to walk past that gated area of the gilbert river that opens to cars on April 15 or is it illegal to cross it in any way. Thanks.

2017 regs say Gilbert's closed last time I checked

Also if some sort of land jurisdiction has a locked gate, safe bet that's not open to you

I've never found high water to be an issue with getting sturgeon to bite and usually can catch them in shallower water when the rivers are up. I think I may go wrestle a few on Sunday
