Green Bay Chapter News by Dan Farah

     The Green Bay Chapter held its annual banquet on March 3rd at the Riverside Ballroom in Green Bay. Once again it was a resounding success. The Green Bay chapter is working in cooperation with the Door County Chapter to supply support staff in a spring portable hatchery project in Door County. Egg collection has been successfully accomplished and by press time over one million fry will have been released in the Green Bay waters off of Door County. An additional 25,000 fry will be collected and transported to a fish rearing facility in Kewaunee to be raised to fingerling status by DNR personal. They will be collected and distributed to Sturgeon Bay areas when they reach about 2 inches in length. We would like to thank all our sponsors and members for your generous contributions.

Walleye Spawning habitat enhancements
by Terry Lychwick, fisheries biologist, Green Bay

     Walleye spawning habitat enhancement projects along the Lower Fox River in the early 1990's were "a huge success". Crews placed 2- to 6-inch clean aggregate rock with proper slope along several areas of the Fox River (Voyager Park, Brown County Fairgrounds, and Fox Point Boat Launch). Historically; spawning walleyes have used these areas, but low water levels limited the amount of habitat. Pre- and Post-evaluations of the habitat improvements projects have shown significant improvement in the recruitment of young walleye to the population. Recent fishery surveys indicate that in seven out of the last ten years, walleye recruitment has exceeded pre-habitat improvement levels.
     Building on this success, the DNR, in partnership with Walleyes For Tomorrow and the city of Green Bay, improved spawning shoals along Joliet Park, located on the East shore of Green Bay. This improvement will improve additional walleye spawning areas as water levels recede.

Walleye Watch on Lineville

Walleyes For Tomorrow had 30 volunteers available for Wisconsin DNR warden Roger Hansen in Green Bay for a planned Walleye Watch on Lineville Rd
     Between April 5-17 the Walleye Watch volunteers supervised the Lineville ditch. This allowed wardens to make arrests in Brown and Oconto County, where walleye spawning and fishing was taking place.
     S usual, there was a lot of public interest in the Lineville ditch for the anticipated walleye spawn. Hansen received several [positive comments from the public about the Walleye Watch patrol and its success
     The DNR is grateful to all the volunteers who took part in the Walleye Watch, and hope they will continue to participate in future years.

Walleyes for Tomorow took a group of folks fishing that may not have had a chance to otherwise have done so.

Rather then just talk about it.

Check out the photos from that day.
