A bucket brigader could have introduced the fish years ago. Sturgeon are hearty enough to be transported easily with the right equipment. Because of the special regulations on the lake, I doubt that the state will allow the fish to be targeted, unless it could be brought to the attention of a sturgeon recovery project. If possible I think the fish would be much happier back in the Columbia, but that's part of the reason why this discussion has started in the first, personification! We take that out and keeping the fish in there just seems ridiculous.
