This morning a young lady in her twenties fishing close to me caught a lake sturgeon out of the Clinch River. It looked to be a little short of a yardstick. She let it go. A fellow who was sitting in the parking lot came down and said TWRA had stocked several thousands of them. The last time I heard of one had been several years earlier. One had gotten stranded in a ditch adjacent to the Emory River and TWRA had to come rescue it. TWRA weighed it and planted it somewhere else, but got back with the land owner and told him it weighed 102 pounds. The lake sturgeon is one of the smaller species of sturgeon, they only grow to 9' long. Some sturgeon out west can reach 14' to 20'. They had forgotten there camera and unfortunately no one had one nearby.
