Minnesota walleye stamp helps stock thousands of fish


ST. PAUL -- By voluntarily purchasing a $5 walleye stamp, anglers can support a walleye stocking program that broadens the distribution of lakes where anglers can pursue Minnesota’s state fish.

The DNR uses walleye stamp proceeds to buy walleye from private producers, which are stocked in lakes that don’t have naturally reproducing walleye populations. In all, anglers bought 17,388 stamps in 2015. Stamp sale proceeds were used last year to purchase 4,200 pounds of fingerlings, or 84,000 fish, from the private sector for stocking, which make up a portion of the 150,000 pounds, or 3 million fingerlings, that the DNR stocks on average each year.
