MADISON - Wisconsin's lakes will be more heavily stocked with walleye this year.

That's thanks to extra funding from the state and private sector.

Hundreds of thousands of walleye will be stocked this year.

During the first year of a three-year initiative to increase walleye numbers in 2013, they raised and released more than 440-thousand young walleye into 100 lakes across the state.

Over the next two years, 400 different lakes will welcome more than 1.5 million walleyes.

The first of the releases will take place near the end of this month.
