On Short Notice, DNR Leaders Pleased With Walleye Initiative
While the next several days outdoors are all about things white tail, the DNR recently said the first year of the Walleye Initiative has been a success.
After the legislature came up with more funding to improve state fish hatcheries and programs earlier this year, the DNR announced the Wisconsin Walleye Initiative, aimed at stocking larger fingerlings in state waters.
The DNR's fisheries director Mike Staggs talks with Ken Krall:
The larger fingerlings are in the 6 to 8 inch range, which biologists say gives the young walleyes a better chance to grow to maturity.
