People of all ages are drawn to opportunities to observe this unique species that inhabits the Lake Winnebago System.  Thousands flock to river banks every spring to observe the spawning ritual or brave the cold in winter for the spearing season.  In many regions where sturgeon were once prevalent,  over harvest and loss of habitat negatively impacted most populations.  Despite declines through most of their range, lake sturgeon have remained abundant in the Lake Winnebago System.  Ryan’s presentation will outline the management activities undertaken by the DNR to protect and manage this culturally and ecologically important resource.
