Walleye Stocking

Question: How do you count 12,515 extended growth walleyes?

Answer: According to the DNR Spooner Hatchery personnel, you count them one at a time. That is how many fish the Wisconsin DNR put into Nelson Lake on Friday (Sept. 28th) early morning. The fish came from the DNR hatchery in Spooner. They were all 7-8 inches long and appeared very healthy.
