MINOCQUA - Among all other fish you can catch, walleyes are especially popular in the Northwoods.

30 years ago, the Minocqua chain of lakes had a sustainable population of walleyes; people could fish freely.

But when the population started to fall in the mid-1990's, artificial management became the only option to help restore the numbers.

Oneida County Fisheries Management Biologist Zach Woiak remembers the time when the walleye's population was all due to their natural way of life.

"Historically the Minocqua chain has had a very good walleye fishery that was all based on natural reproduction, so there was no stocking needed," said Woiak.

A local group of stakeholders, including representatives from the DNR, Walleyes for Tomorrow, and the Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission came together back in the early 2000's.

The group developed a plan while gathering public input

Woiak says the majority of anglers sided with the stakeholders.

"They were on board with it. We had a lot of public meetings and got a lot of public input. We made sure that all the stakeholders were on board. It's been pretty good," he said.
