Walleye Spawning Bed Enhancement in Ontario
Walleye, also known as pickerel, are a highly prized sports fish and an important part of the biodiversity in many waters of Ontario. If you have walleye in your lake or river, you may be able to help strengthen their populations by enhancing walleye spawning beds.
This “how to” video features three different spawning bed projects undertaken by the Lanark County Stewardship Council in partnership with the Lanark Fish and Game Conservation Club, Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, Dalhousie Lake Association and Watersheds Canada.
Before starting your own project you may want to consult our step by step protocol on Walleye Spawning Bed Enhancement in Ontario, available here Walleye Spawning Bed Protocols. It includes everything you will need to know, from planning and developing the project through to carrying it out successfully.
