Idaho Power Company has launched a study to monitor survival of young sturgeon stocked below CJ Strike Reservoir. They are using specialized equipment under large floats in the river to monitor the movements of tagged sturgeon.

If you encounter any of these floats, clearly marked with the words "Idaho Power Company," please leave the equipment undisturbed. The quality information they collect during this study will help improve sturgeon fishing for everyone.
