Walleyes Doing Well In Leech

The walleye population remains strong in Leech Lake according to results of fall test netting conducted on the lake by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The lake’s walleye population is above the long-term average and similar to the 2009 and 2010 averages.
Doug Schultz, large lake specialist in Walker said September gill nets showed an abundance of walleye from 14 to 26 inches, and a nice distribution of walleye within and outside of the protected slot limit of 18 and 26 inches.”
The numbers indicate that actions implemented under the current management plan are succeeding, noted Schultz. Key elements of the plan include special fishing regulations, walleye fry stocking, cormorant control and an increased emphasis on aquatic habitat protection.
