2017 Beautiful Lake Walleye Transfer

IMG_3029

The Walleye Transfer Project consists of transferring walleye reared in Beautiful Lake to various lakes within and surrounding the Duck Mountains. This method of stocking returns higher survival rates and increases angling quality within recipient water bodies. Swan Valley Sport Fishing Enhancement and Manitoba Sustainable Development – Fisheries Branch have developed an unique partnership with many user groups including Intermountain Sport Fishing Enhancement, various Cottage Owners Associations and school groups to make this project one of the most valuable projects to our fisheries. 2017 marked the 9th anniversary for this project bringing the total walleye transferred to 34,843 since 2009. Thank you to everyone who has contributed over the years.
