Lake Scugog Walleye Spawning Bed Remediation

The Scugog Lake Stewards are currently working alongside the Ministry of Naturalthree-pound-walleye-caught-lake-scugog Resources Fish and Wildlife Services Branch to implement a walleye spawning bed rehabilitation project in the near future. We hope that such a project, and the closure of the winter or summer and winter walleye season(s), will help increase the plummeting walleye population in Lake Scugog.

Following public input, the Ministry will decide whether to close just the winter walleye fishery on Lake Scugog, or both the winter and summer seasons. This decision will be made this fall with implementation in January of 2016.

We will keep you posted on the walleye spawning bed rehabilitation project, and the ministry’s decision.
