ND Outdoors: Tackling walleye and winterkill issues at fishery

Wentz WPA still has plenty of walleyes for ice anglers to target this winter.

We are part of The Trust Project.

In this week’s segment of North Dakota Outdoors, Mike Anderson takes us to a fishery in Logan County where biologists are taking measures to utilize walleye in a lake with an increased chance of winterkill.

“In years with abundant precipitation, the Wentz Waterfowl Production Area has enough water to support year-round survival of our walleye," says Paul Bailey, fisheries supervisor with the North Dakota Game and Fish Department. "And we've aggressively stocked the Wentz Waterfowl Production Area in 2019 and 2020 due to the ability of that lake to support walleye at that time. And it's got quite a few walleye in it that are doing fairly well right now.”

Updated stocking reports are available by accessing the fishing link on the Game and Fish website at gf.nd.gov.
