Extra Money Leads to More Walleyes in Wisconsin

Created: 07/11/2014 10:31 AM WDIO.com

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin's lakes will be more heavily stocked with walleyes this year thanks to extra funding from the state and private sector.

Oshkosh Northwestern Media reports that hundreds of thousands of walleye will be stocked this year.

In 2012, the state Department of Natural Resources raised 40,000 growth fingerlings for the year. During the first year of a three-year initiative to bolster walleye numbers in 2013, they raised and released more than 440,000 growth and extended-growth fingerlings into 100 lakes across the state.

Over the next two years, 400 different lakes will welcome more than 1.5 million growth and extended-growth fingerling walleyes. The first of the releases of growth fingerlings will take place near the end of this month.
