2018 Walleye Stocking

posted in: Nature Watch, News | 0

In May, the DNR harvested their walleye ponds and we were able to get a good number of carry-over walleye. Lake John was scheduled to be stocked with walleye this fall but the DNR decided to stock it this spring. The lake was slated to receive 353 lbs of walleye fingerlings; however due to the size of the fish (yearlings – 10” – 12” and adults – 15” – 20”) close to 600 lbs of walleye were stocked.
