Great stuff from Rex Springston in today’s T-D about sturgeon congregating around the Mayo Bridge. Maybe you remember last year when this happened? Rex and I wrote about it, and lots of people went down there to look for them. Well, it’s that time of year again. The water is quite as clear and low as in 2012, but it’s still worth a shot if you have the time. This is like Richmond’s version of Sea World, only less staged and with dinosaurs!

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
