To evaluate populations and stocking success, we netted Lake Independence for muskellunge in early spring; walleye were also sampled.

While not found in LakeFinder, this mid-summer sampling of Lake Independence was made using the same methods and locations as a typical lake survey; the results can be used for historic comparisons.

During autumn 2007, we conducted electrofishing in lakes Waconia (Sept. 26) and Minnetonka (Oct. 24) to find evidence of walleye natural reproduction. No young-of-the-year walleye were found at either lake, corroborating other samples and reports of minimal natural reproduction in these waters.
