Sturgeon Spawning Numbers

We’re getting a look at the early numbers this sturgeon spawning season. The DNR reports having handled 68 fish in the New London area Wednesday, combined between the Embarrass River and Sturgeon Trail. Crews also tagged 54 fish at Bamboo Bend in Shiocton – and 19 more at a site on private property in Leeman. Spawning activity is beginning to drop in the Shiocton area – but crews say activity near Shawano should begin to pick up this weekend.
