Oh, our tiny walleye grow up so fast! These little guys have travelled many kilometres in a very short time – these fish really do fly! Now it’s time to safely stock these tiny walleye into Lac La Biche. What comes next? Read on to find out.

A lot of time and people need to come together to stock this many fish!
