wow...if i knew they were doing that bad, i probably wouldn't fish it. they should just ban fishing for walleye there until problem improves.
probably would try a different water body that has a more stable population instead.

yeah... it's even worse cause i hear that the HUGE rockbass population in the river eat the eggs or the walleye :?:

everyone in town tell me that if i catch a rockbass i should just throw it up on shore for the seagulls, but i just can't bring myself to do that
the river also had a huge whitefish population and my dad hasn't seen one in the river in over 20 years :lol: they were overfished
