Did You Know?

White Sturgeon of the Columbia River

Lake Roosevelt's sturgeon are 8 to 20 feet long. They are also at least 70 years old. In 1941, Grand Coulee Dam flooded the fast-moving waters they need to spawn. To help out the population, the state of Washington introduced new fish to the lake in 2006.
