Fishing WisconsinSturgeon for Tomorrow

In 1977 a group of sturgeon enthusiasts from Lake Winnebago founded Sturgeon for Tomorrow to help preserve, protect and enhance the sturgeon resource of the lake system. That group quickly grew into the largest citizen advocacy group for sturgeon in the world, currently made up of five chapters and over 3,000 members. Through tremendous dedication and hard work Sturgeon for Tomorrow (SFT) has raised and donated to date over $576,000 for sturgeon research and management since its inception. SFT has funded a wide variety of projects over the years including the sturgeon guard program, spawning and nursery site construction on the Wolf River, sturgeon population assessments, and special assessment equipment purchases. SFT is also responsible for sponsoring research that helped develop Wisconsin's lake sturgeon artificial propagation program.

This program has contributed to many sturgeon restoration projects across the Midwestern U.S and Canada. SFT also provided the support necessary to ensure the enactment of the $1,500 fine for possession of an illegal sturgeon, and actively participates in Winnebago and statewide sturgeon management advisory committees. If you are interested in further information about Sturgeon for Tomorrow or are interested in attending one of their four fund raising banquets held each winter, please call Bill Casper at (920) 921-1358.
