MADISON, Wis. – The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host a public meeting to discuss updating the Wisconsin Walleye Management Plan for Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Green, Jefferson and Rock counties.

The meeting will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 6:30 p.m. Anyone interested in walleye management for Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Green, Jefferson and Rock counties and who would like to participate should contact Max Wolter at Max.Wolter@wisconsin.gov or 715-634-7429. Pre-registration is required.

The current walleye management plan serves as a guide for one of the most sought-after fish species in Wisconsin and outlines seven goals and strategies for walleye management. The updating process will include a review of the existing plan, an analysis of available data and trends and significant public input on angling and management preferences.

The DNR is seeking public feedback on stocking priorities, regulation acceptance and agency resource allocation. The public is invited to give input on the process through:

  • Comments on walleye management preferences and issues via this public input form
  • Detailed random mail/online surveys of fishing license holders (both resident and non-resident) to scientifically gauge angler attitudes about management options
  • Regional virtual meetings with stakeholder groups and individuals to discuss local management issues and partnership opportunities

After this final meeting, the DNR will analyze all feedback and determine the best path forward for updating the current walleye management plan.
