Game, Fish, and Parks Proposes Bringing Walleye to Black Hills Lakes

South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks officials held a meeting Wednesday where they took public input on possibly introducing walleye into some area lakes as reported by KOTA News. Officials stressed that while they are proposing putting walleye into both Sheridan and Stockade Lakes, they would need to do more research to see if there is enough food for both the walleye as well as the other predators already in those lakes. If the studies reveal positive results, the department could put in an order for walleye as part of next year's stocking program. Local fishermen have been wanting to get the predator fish into Hills' lakes for years.
