The Saginaw Bay Walleye Recovery Plan calls for interruptions to stocking when three or more predominantly wild year classes have been created. This level was achieved in 2005.

Now the DNR is proposing to not stock the bay in 2006 and instead use fingerling walleye for stocking in inland locations. Further stocking under this current situation is believed to have little or no benefit to the bay’s walleye population. The DNR is proposing to continue to monitor the situation and resume stocking if and when adult alewives become abundant again.
