|Walleye stocking records shattered as first year of initiative ends: DNR|
Department of Natural Resources (DNR) stocking records for large fingerling walleye were shattered last week as the last load of walleye produced in 2013 under the Wisconsin Walleye Initiative was delivered to Smith Lake in Sawyer County.
The lake was the 100th water body to receive the 6- to 8-inch walleye, often called large fingerlings or extended-growth walleye.In all, 440,481 large walleye fingerlings were stocked in Wisconsin in September, October and November. That’s more than four times as many larger walleye as is typically produced and stocked in Wisconsin, and it was made possible through a two-year funding initiative
