Walleye

What's driving the Wisconsin walleye decline?

Researchers know Wisconsin lakes aren't too warm for walleye, a cool-water fish, to survive. They suspect it's a recruitment (surviving to maturity) issue that has more to do with food sources and what species has the competitive edge.

Walleye size limit change on the Manitowish chain to be discussed

The current regulations allow one fish over 14 inches and two fish under 14 inches to be harvested. WFT would like to see that changed to a harvest limit of three fish daily between 15 and 20 inches and no fish between 20 to 24 inches. The change would also allow one of three harvested fish to be longer than 24 inches.
