Sturgeon Spawning


Each Spring, between late March and early May, the sturgeon swim along the shoreline looking for a place to spawn. The fish are huge, old and pretty ugly but you can only see the sturgeon spawning for a couple days when the water reaches 53 degrees. We checked them out last year in Shiocton and it was an incredible site.

Pack a picnic or stop by Charlie’s Drive-In on Main Street in Hortonville for a snack or ice cream.
