Fish Stocking

The fish stocking program continues by popular demand and shortly we will receive 3000 Channel Catfish in the 6-8” range.  We are working on several ideas to get grant funds to stock Walleye for Gizzard Shad control.  This will save the association many thousands of dollars required for Walleye stocking.  We will discuss this in detail at the June meeting.
