“Dear Winnebago Sturgeon Spearers,
Get your Upriver Lakes Sturgeon Spearing Lottery Application by August 2
Just a quick note to let you know that the deadline for purchasing your application for getting into the 2011 Upriver Lakes Sturgeon Spearing Lottery is coming up fast.  Normally you have until August 1 to purchase your $3 lottery application, but since Aug 1 is on a Sunday this year, you have until Monday August 2 to purchase your application.  You can get your lottery application at any DNR license center or vendor.
Once all the applications are in our licensing folks will do the drawing and let spearers know no later than October 1 whether they were drawn for a tag.  Group lottery applications of up to four persons are accepted for the Upriver Lakes lottery. Group applications must be submitted on-line at Spearers that apply for but are not authorized to purchase an 2011 Upriver Lakes license receive a preference point, and can still purchase a license for Lake Winnebago, but must do so by the October 31 license sales deadline (spearers can only buy one tag or the other, not both). Sales for both Lake Winnebago and Upriver Lakes sturgeon spearing licenses end October 31.  The Upriver Lakes sturgeon lottery fishery will limit participation to 500 tags in 2011.”
