The August full moon is known around the Great Lakes as the Sturgeon Moon since August was traditionally the month when these ancient and venerable fish were most abundant and easily caught. The Sturgeon family has been known to exist since the days of the dinosaurs. Lake Sturgeon were a staple among Native Americans of the Great Lakes—a Sturgeon might live over 100 years and weigh as much as 200 pounds—but commercial fishing practices in the mid- to late- 1800’s almost eradicated the species. Today, Lake Sturgeon are making a slow comeback thanks to conservation efforts, and this paddle under the full August Sturgeon Moon is both an appreciation of nature and a celebration of stewardship
