April Stocking Event

We just got word that muskies will be delivered to Pewaukee Lake (Smokey’s Launch) on Monday, April 5, around 9:00AM.  We should have around 150 fish.  These are the “wintered” fish that are much bigger than usual stocked fish.

We could use volunteers to help distribute fish around the lake.  And…for photo opportunities!

Other BIG Annoucements!

The DNR will be running a warm water study on muskies.  They are planning on transferring 5, 30-35 inch fish, from  Pewaukee Lake to a facility to be studied regarding catch and release mortality rates.  This may have future management implications for waters that lack thermal refuge or reach high surface temperatures.

The DNR has also blessed our request to stock Leech Lake muskies into Pewaukee Lake!  Future correspondence on this will include how to donate to the club in order to get this kind of fish into the Lake.  We will have a specific fund set up to make sure that any donations made go directly to the stocking of Leech Lake strain muskies.  We do have non-profit status, so receipts of donations will be given for tax purposes.  It is our hope to have a “Donate Now” type feature onto the website soon to make this very easy.  The more money we raise, the more Leech Lake muskies that can be put into the lake.
