DNR stocks Forestville Flowage with fish

After the Forestville flowage water levels were drawn down and then restored this fall, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources just completed a restocking of fish.  In mid-October 2,351 largemouth bass and 47,949 fingerling bluegills were stocked into the Forestville Flowage.  DNR Fisheries Biologist Nick Legler says the collaboration with the Door County Soil and Water Conservation Department and Door County Facilities and Parks will go a long way in improving the ecosystem and create future opportunities for anglers.



The bluegill will reach six inches in four years and the bass up to 14 inches within four to five years.   The stocked fish were provided by the DNR’s Northfield Lake Fish Rearing Station in Jackson County and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Fish Hatchery in Genoa.
