The First Before Time
Sturgeon have been plying Wisconsin waters for aeons. these living fossils shared the waterscape with dinosaurs 200 million years ago and witnessed the advance and retreat of four major ice sheets. Rivulets of glacial meltwater provided a connection from the warm water refuge of the Mississippi River to Lake Winnebago. When the last ice sheet moved out of this area, the sturgeon moved in. Today, sturgeon take to the Wolf River every spring following prehistoric migration routes to engage in their ancient spawning ritual.
