More walleyes on target for lake stocking this fall

State fish hatcheries have finished stocking the first of two waves of walleye to go out this year and the number of fish stocked far surpassed original estimates, state fisheries officials say.

Four state fish hatcheries equipped to grow cool-water fish such as walleye and muskie sent more than 2.3 million walleye out the door earlier this summer, 560,000 fish more than originally expected.

These fish were 1 to 3 inches long when they were transferred into their new homes. They are the small fingerlings that the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has traditionally stocked the most of because growing the fish to the “large fingerling” size of 4 to 7 inches would cost significantly
