Project targets 4 northern Wisconsin lakes

WOODRUFF, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will host a public meeting to discuss a proposed walleye rehabilitation effort on Katherine and Clear Lakes in Oneida County and Laura and Anvil Lakes in Vilas County.

Interested parties are invited to ask questions and voice their opinion about walleye management on these four lakes of concern which, until recently, supported strong, naturally reproducing walleye populations. Levels of natural walleye reproduction and recruitment have declined over time, with no simple answers explaining the cause.

The DNR will host a virtual meeting via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Members of the public can access the meeting via the Zoom link or by calling 1-929-205-6099 and using meeting ID 851 3948 5837.

The meeting will detail the proposed walleye rehabilitation plan developed in partnership with the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians and the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission.

The plan’s goal is to restore natural walleye reproduction and recruitment in the four lakes.
