Establishing Walleye Fisheries

We completed a review to compile options for establishing and improving walleye fisheries in Alberta. Compiled methods include fish passage for movement between lakes, fish passage to spawning habitat, improvement of spawning habitat, traditional stocking programs, lake specific stocking, triploid walleye stocking, and adult walleye transfer. Using available data, we developed an understanding of the strengths, weaknesses, feasibility, and data gaps of each method. Based on the information we have gathered, ACA in collaboration with AEP, will select study lakes and develop lake-specific plans to improve walleye fishing opportunities for anglers.
