OSHKOSH, (WTAQ) - The DNR is reporting that the majority of sturgeon spawning has wrapped up. 

DNR Conservation Warden April Dombrowski says it was a whirlwind week and could go down as the fastest spawning run ever.

Usually it takes a week to ten days.  But once the warm-up hit over the weekend, things took off. 

DNR officials anticipated a hold-up because of the extended winter and were cancelling sturgeon guard shifts throughout April.

DNR conservation wardens will patrol the remaining spawning activity.
