Lake Sturgeon Spawning in Wisconsin

March 26, 2010

Sturgeon spawning takes place every year between mid-April and early-May.  According to the Wisconsin DNR, “Sturgeon spawning is dependent on water temperature and flow. During seasons when water flow is high and water temperatures rise slowly, spawning begins when water temperature reaches 53 degrees Fahrenheit. In contrast, during seasons of low water flow and more rapid water temperature rise, spawning does not begin until water temperatures reach 58-59 degrees Fahrenheit.”

For more info and sturgeon spawning viewing locations along the Wolf River, read the 2009 Lake Sturgeon Spawning Update.  The Sturgeon Guard plays an important part so please consider volunteering to protect the sturgeon.  Remember to respect the sturgeon during this time and report ANY poaching that you witness.  Check back for updates!

All info was found on the Wisconsin DNR website at http://dnr.wi.gov.
