Default Sturgeon in Newport?

Does anybody know if sturgeon fishing is open in the bay at Newport? Also has anybody ever done any good sturgeon fishing there? I am going to be down there next weekend and just thought that might be fun for the kids while we let the crab pots soak. Oh and from a boat is what I am reffering too. Thanks for any and all help.

Open all year in the Yaquina. Winter months are the best for Sturgeon, lots of bait robbers this time of year. But there is always a chance, Good Luck !!!

From the sounds of it sturgeon may not keep the kids entertained while we wait for the crabs to fill the pots. Someone suggested perch fishing with the kids. Do any or you have any suggestions for bait and rigging for perch?

I would let the kids jig for herring while waiting for the crab.

I thought that was earlier in the year? Are there herring in the bay right now? and what do you use to catch them?

We got some about a week ago. Not near the numbers at the first of the month.
You can pick up the herring jigs at the South Beach Marina or Harry's Bait on the bay front.
Give Harry's or South Beach a call, they will be able to tell if they are still around.

You could honestly fish for days if not weeks without touching a sturgeon. Why not troll for Salmon? prime time right now.

Probably will. But not sure how long the kids are going to stand for that. At age 7 and 10 they like a lot of action or they just get into the dang video games.

Crab with rings instead of traps, if you have 6 rings in the water you can stay plenty busy. Use mink or chicken to avoid feeding the seals though
