3/31/2017 7:20:00 AM Lac Vieux Desert Walleye Rehabilitation Community Meeting on April 4
A Lac Vieux Desert Walleye Rehabilitation Community Meeting will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4 at the Land O Lakes Elementary School library.
This is the first of two public meetings being held in Vilas County to gather public input on a multi-agency plan to address declining walleye numbers in Lac Vieux Desert. The 4,300 acre flowage, which straddles the Wisconsin-Michigan border near Land O'Lakes in northeastern Vilas County, has experienced a decline in walleye abundance and recruitment over the past decade. The draft plan proposes a variety of steps such as targeted stocking, changes in bag limits and additional monitoring to address the decline.
For more information contact Steve Gilbert, Department of Natural Resources Woodruff area fisheries supervisor, 715-356-5211 ext. 229, or Stephen.Gilbert@wisconsin.gov.
