Sturgeon Spawning Update from Ron Bruch

Excerpt on sturgeon spawning from Ron Bruch’s update on March 27, 2012:

“We found more sturgeon on spawning sites to tag today despite the cold weather this morning, ending up with 63 total fish captured and tagged at two sites, Hwy 156 and the Pines. There were fish actively spawning or “lollygagging” at a few other sites as well strongly suggesting that fish will continue to trickle on to spawning sites even though the water temps are much lower than they were late last week. We will continue to work fish wherever we find them – we like to get as many fish tagged from as sites as possible each year. Nothing again at Shawano today, although I still expect fish to begin spawning at this site within the 3-6 days – we’ll see – these fish never tire at making a fool out of me (they’ve been doing it for over twenty years; why stop now).
