DNR Says Black Lake Sturgeon Season Begins in February


LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the season for pursuing sturgeon on Cheboygan County's Black Lake will begin Feb. 2.

Anglers wanting to catch or spear a lake sturgeon must register. Early registration takes place Feb. 1 at the DNR's Onaway Field Station. But those unable to register then can do so the next day at the entrance booth to Onaway State Park or a trailer on Zolner Road near the lake.

Only six of the prized and prehistoric fish can be harvested because of their low numbers.

Recent changes in registration logistics were developed to allow more anglers to participate while protecting the lake's sturgeon from overharvest.

State agencies and private groups work together to protect Black Lake's sturgeon population.
