Bill Dalpiaz of our Fishing and Water Quality committee reports that WDNR Fisheries Biologist Zach Lawson conducted an electrofishing survey on Lake of the Falls last Monday night, looking for natural walleye reproduction prior to the WDNR’s bi-annual stocking of our lake in a couple of weeks. The plan is to stock 5070 large walleye fingerlings sometime around September 24th.
Bill also sent an informative report created by Zach Lawson and Fisheries Biologist Lawrence Eslinger about the history of walleye management on the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage. It’s full of interesting information about habitat, population estimates, growth and mortality, etc. You can read it here.
