We haven't seen much rain. Would doing the Sturgeon mid-July involve a fair amount of dragging? Would it be worth it?

Wouldn't worry about mid-July. If you're talking downstream, very little dragging if any but you may just scrape the bottom north of Pilgrim...
Unless it's lower than I've ever experienced, but I've been up (mostly) and down the Sturgeon at least 10 times in August.
So I wouln't worry and Yes it'd be worth it!

Sturgeon Falls are currently at 7.5 m3/s, which is low for June. The lowest I did the Sturgeon was at 5.5 - it included some wading, especially above Kettle falls, but not much. If it gets somewhere below 4.5 it could be a different story.

I just rechecked this today and the flow is dropping like a rock. In 4 days it has gone from 7.5m3/s to 6.0m3/s. Unless there is serious rain soon it is going to be shallow.

I took a look at the river gauge again today, and there was a boost probably due to some rain during the early parts of July, but now the Sturgeon is back down to just over 4.5m3/s again.
