Public can comment on draft of Michigan’s Saginaw Bay walleye/perch management plan through June 1

For walleyes in Saginaw Bay, the plan aims to achieve (or maintain) a walleye population “that 1) provides abundant and diverse angling and harvest opportunities, 2) is self-sustaining, and 3) remains in balance with the prey base.” (Stock photo)

It’s no secret that the walleye is king of Michigan’s Saginaw Bay fishery, the yellow perch deposed but still cherished.
That will remain the case, according to a draft Walleye and Perch Recreational Management Plan for Saginaw Bay, until conditions change: a new source of prey in the Bay, or a dramatic decline in walleye numbers, to let more small perch grow to adulthood. Those changes are not necessarily in the cards, nor desired without qualification.
