Monitoring of the white sturgeon subpopulation in the C.J. Strike to Swan Falls reach has led managers to characterize the population as being spawning limited. In 1996, the white sturgeon population was estimated at 726 fish or 16 fish/km. A 2007 survey led to an abundance estimate of 566 fish. Because staging, spawning, and larval habitat is only available during median or high water years, downstream movement of mid-size and larger white sturgeon is likely supporting the current population structure below C.J. Strike Dam.
