Deep Creek Lake Annual Walleye Population Survey

Type: Freshwater
Location: Deep Creek Lake

Western Region Fisheries Biologists recently conducted the annual Walleye Population Survey in Deep Creek Lake. Anglers should enjoy another great season in Deep Creek Lake (opening day is April 16) as we documented a high abundance level of adult Walleye during the electrofishing survey. Most of the Walleye were in the 16 - 18 inch size class, and we did collect a few larger fish greater than 20 inches. We also collected a large sample of Bluegills, and most of these fish were in the 8 to 10 inch size class.

Pictured are 1) Capt. Jody Johnson of the Western Region Research Vessel; 2) Fisheries Technician Terri Belasco with a large Walleye; 3) Brook Trout Biologist Matt Sell with another large Walleye; 4) Big DCL Bluegill
