Record Number of Lakes Stocked with Walleye

Monday, July 21, 2014
North Dakota Game and Fish Department fisheries personnel recently wrapped up stocking walleye in a record 133 lakes across the state.

Jerry Weigel, fisheries production and development supervisor, said thanks to the excellent walleye fingerling production from the Garrison Dam and Valley City national fish hatcheries, these waters received nearly 10 million fingerlings.

?With a record number of fishing waters across the state, the demand to stock these new waters with hatchery fish has greatly increased,? Weigel said. ?We?ve increased our efforts to make sure we meet the record production demands.?
