South Dakota GF&P Heads Walleye Study

The South Dakota Department of Game, Fish & Parks (GF&P) has begun a four year study to examine key characteristics of some of the state’s walleye population. As reported by the Black Hills Pioneer, GF&P will tag approximately 500 walleye across the Angostura, Belle Fourche, and Shadehill reservoirs. Biologists will study the population age, mortality rates, and size of the fish.

Approximately 5% of the fish tagged were marked with a reward tag, valued at $100 if an angler returns it to GF&P. Anglers can report the tags on the GF&P website or by calling 605.223.7656.
