Walleye Stocking Efforts

John Ney, our GLA President, has been spearheading and effort to re-establish a viable population of Walleyes in our lake. In the Fall of 2012, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) stock approximately 2000 extended growth(EG) walleyes in Gilmore. Survivors of this age group should now be reaching legal harvesting size. In the Fall of 2014 the GLA sponsored and additional stocking of 1700 EG walleyes. This summer these fish should be in the 7-12 inch size range.  If these efforts are successful we plan to continue stocking these fish every other year. If you should be so lucky as to catch some of these fish please let John know the size and date of capture at jney@vt.edu or call 715-466-4198.
