“Winnebago Sturgeon Spearing Report – Friday February 25

See Sturgeon Vignette attached: Chronology of Winnebago Lake Sturgeon Regulations and Significant Events, 1874–2011

Throughout the season I have referred to various historical events, rules, people, and management actions that have impacted or been a part of our Winnebago Lake Sturgeon Management Program over the years. Today’s vignette is the whole enchilada – all of the sturgeon rules, laws, significant environmental events, and management actions since 1874 . Have fun.
