Keeping local lakes stocked with walleye

Members of the United Walleye Clubs, an umbrella organization made up of local fish and game clubs that oversees walleye culture activities in Greater Sudbury, had a good night Monday at Wabagishik Lake, where they collected nine big hens – including a monster that came in between 16 and 20 pounds, depending on who you asked – and eight males. Monday was the first night the electro fishing boat was in the area to help the UWC collect walleye eggs and milt to fill local hatcheries that help repopulate lakes across Greater Sudbury, and UWC members were optimistic another good night lay ahead at Ella Lake, located not far from Wabagishik, about 50 kms west of Sudbury.United Walleye Clubs member Eric Daoust shows a nice male walleye the organization captured while electro fishing Tuesday night at Ella Lake. The milt was taken from the male to mix with fresh walleye eaggs and the fish released afterward.
