General Comments

Stocked several hundred thousand sauger fry Tuesday, added a few pictures.  Bags of fry, looking into the bag of fry and jars of walleye eggs at Milford Hatchery.

The lake is still down, water is up on the concrete at the boat ramp a couple of inches.

I see some of you have visited the new Facebook page.  I've posted a bunch of photos: walleye egg collection, stocking and electrofishing of lakes that are not in the fishing reports.  Just click this link hopefully you'll LIKE what you see!

I October netting pictures are up, we have white bass now! Click on Banner Creek above fishing report to see some of these fish . Click on the fish species and it will take you to the updated Fishing Forecast Data.
