      SHIOCTON - It's been off to a slow start, but sturgeon spawning season is here and the activity is picking up.

      Some hot spots to catch the action include the Sturgeon Trail in New London, Bamboo Bend in Shiocton, and below the Shawano Dam.

      Wisconsin DNR officials say once fish start spawning at each site, they’ll only be there “heavily” for one to two days.

      FOX 11's Pauleen Le spent the morning at Bamboo Bend checking out the action.
