GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — State fish experts will hold a series of public meetings on walleye populations in northeastern Wisconsin.
The Department of Natural Resources wants to update its walleye management plan for the Winnebago System, which includes lakes Winnebago, Butte des Morts, Winneconne and Poygan and the Fox and Wolf rivers. A 2007 DNR study found anglers spend up to 2 million hours on the system each year fishing for walleye and other species.
Discussion topics at the meeting will include the walleye population's status, harvest estimates, size, age and sex distributions over the last 20 years and migrational patterns.
Meetings are scheduled for July 13 in Shiocton; Aug. 10 in Menasha; Aug. 11 in Quinney; and Aug. 12 in Fond du Lac.
