DNR sets public hearing to discuss walleye initiative

Public meetings are set for mid-October in Rhinelander, Hayward and Ocono­mo­woc to discuss Wisconsin’s walleye fisheries and get people’s opinions on what considerations the state should use in coming years to decide how to allocate the increased number of large walleyes for stocking made possible under the Wisconsin Walleye Initiative.
