It’s time for Walleye Weekend

 

Ready or not, here it comes — the 42nd annual Walleye Weekend.

It’s one of those special happenings. You know, an event that brings people together year after year after year. In 2023, nearly 2,000 anglers entered the walleye contest, vying for the chance to catch one of the tagged walleyes. Part of the proceeds from those entries helped fund various projects directly related to angling in the Iowa Great Lakes Area.

Little details make a big difference

 

A good day of fishing is different things to different anglers.  To some, a good day is when a bunch of fish are caught.  Size isn’t so important, but having some fish pull back is.

To other anglers, fishing success means you caught a big one.  To them, a couple of big fish are better than a bunch of smaller ones.

Time to start planning to control plants in Iowa ponds.

A healthy pond needs aquatic plants, but too many plants can limit the pond’s use and cause imbalances in the fish population. If you had problems using your pond last year because of aquatic plant growth, you could have similar problems this year.

Leave wildlife babies where they belong – in the wild

It's as predictable as May flowers - from border to border, the Wildlife Baby Season has arrived in Iowa. From now until at least mid-June, DNR field offices across the state will be inundated with hundreds of phone calls and scores of deliveries regarding "orphaned wildlife."
