OSHKOSH — Another spring tradition is delayed by the unseasonably cold weather.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the low temperatures have delayed the sturgeon spawning season. Last year, the sturgeon had taken over the Wolf River to spawn well before the end of March. This year, the river is quiet.

DNR sturgeon biologist Ryan Koenigs says it shouldn't have an impact on the survival rate of the sturgeon eggs, but the fish might be a little smaller going into the winter.

Fisheries biologist Steve Hogler tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/15Kx2Zl ) sturgeon aren't the only fish behind the usual schedule. Hogler says pike and walleye spawning is about two weeks behind. With a promising forecast, the DNR expects the fish will move in rapidly once temperatures rise.
