Michigan: 4.2M walleye stocked in state waters

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says 4.16 million pond-raised walleye fingerlings have been stocked in 120 water bodies located throughout the state this spring and summer. The DNR announced the results Tuesday. It says walleye ponds "are a critical component of the DNR's coolwater fisheries management" program. It says it used 30 walleye ponds this year and says "most rely heavily on the support of local sportsmen organizations." The DNR says eggs are taken from adult walleye from the Muskegon River and Little Bay De Noc. It says the eggs are hatched at Thompson and Wolf Lake state fish hatcheries. A few days after hatching, the larval walleyes are moved to ponds.
