DNR Seeking Sturgeon GuardsSubmitted: 03/17/2013
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - The Wisconsin DNR is looking for sturgeon guards.

Volunteers are needed to guard sturgeon as the fish make their annual spawning run up the Wolf River in eastern Wisconsin. This will happen sometime between late March and early May.

Because lake sturgeon gather in such large numbers, they are susceptible to people wading in the water to grab them or netting them from a boat.

Sturgeon guards do not stop poachers. The volunteers are asked to observe, collect information and call a warden.

They learned how to tie their own flies to use for fly fishing.

"Everyone gets excited this time of year when the snow starts to melt, you start to see some open water and what better way to prepare by tying flies and start the fishing off with a good full box of flies," says class instructor Austin Noring.
