Concern over the decline of lake sturgeon populations across Wisconsin has led to support for protection and enhancement plans in several river systems. Between 2008 and 2012, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources assessed distribution, movement, and abundance of lake sturgeon below dams on the Namekagon and upper St. Croix rivers and above the Trego Dam on the Namekagon. Come hear about the results of the study and what it means for the future of sturgeon along the Riverway.
