This plan identifies several goals for managing walleye populations in Michigan's inland waters. The goals broadly address social and ecological characteristics of walleye fisheries in Michigan because both elements are critical for successfully managing this species in the future. More specifically, each goal has a brief rationale, specific objectives and strategic actions documented to provide context and recommendations for how to achieve the desired management outcomes.
The deadline to provide comments on the draft walleye management plan has passed. Walleye management plan coordinators will be working to finalize the plan and respond to the comments received. Thank you to everyone who took the time to review the plan and provide comments.
