Minnetonka Walleye?

4 posts in this topic

Do walleyes reproduce on Minnetonka or is the population totally dependent on stocking?

Actually DNR says natural reproduction is very low. Following is a quote from the DNR latest lake assessment (2004). " As seen in previous years, natural reproduction of walleye is quite limited. Sixty-seven of 69 fish (97%) sampled in 2004 were of stocked year-classes". The walleye population on Tonka is maintained by stocking done in even years. Seems there isn't enough suitable spawning habitat to support natural reproduction. DNR conducted a multiple gear survey in 2007 but I haven't seen any published info yet.

That's too bad, but glad they stock it.
