Wisconsin DNR Seeking Your Input on Walleye Management Plan

Posted on 12-09-2020

Walleye are one of the most popular species targeted by Wisconsin anglers. Each year, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) stocks hundreds of thousands of walleye fingerlings into lakes across the state, surveys walleye populations and walleye anglers, and works on habitat projects to benefit walleye.

All walleye management activities are guided by Wisconsin’s Walleye Management Plan, which was created in 1998.

The DNR is in the process of updating Wisconsin’s Walleye Management Plan to better meet new challenges to walleye management. Here’s how you can be involved:

Random mail/online survey – These will be sent out to random resident and non-resident fishing license holders. If you get one, please fill it out and return it!

Public input form – Do you have something you want to share with the planning team about your own walleye fishing experiences? Got a great idea that should be considered for the plan? Or maybe you just want to let us know how you think walleye fishing has been lately. Take a few minutes to fill out our input form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QDRQ7Q9

Are you someone who really cares about walleye management? Maybe you have a resort, baitshop or guide business that focuses on walleye fishing. We will be hosting virtual focus group meetings with stakeholders for different areas around the state. If you are interested in joining one of these meetings contact [email protected]
