Stocking

The Association wishes to thank everyone for their increased gifts to the fish stocking fund last year. A special thank you to the Sportsmen's Clubs for their continued donations to our stocking account. If you see any of these club members, be sure to thank them on behalf of the property owners of Lake Miltona.

Past Stocking Efforts
2021 Stocking Report
The Association received a permit to stock 1000 pounds of walleye fry in October 2021. Stocking was done into shallower water at two locations. Shallow water is thought to reduce predation as they are stocked. Stocking of fingerlings was also done by the DNR.

35,000 fingerlings were stocked, at an approximate length of 4-6 inches. Because the DNR is limited on stocking due to COVID and budgets, the Association hopes to continue our supplemental stocking in Lake Miltona to ensure fish are being put in annually on a consistent basis.

We have made a commitment to the grower to continue this process for three more years, permitting allowed, and the grower will have fish available for us. We have two more years under this agreement.

2020 Stocking Report
The Association received a permit this year to stock 1300 pounds of walleye fingerlings from the Minnesota DNR in October 2020. We witnessed the weighing of the fish, and the dispersment into the lake. The fingerlings were approximately 4-6 inch. Each pound included approximately 24-25 fingerlings, totally approximately 40,000. A commitment has been made with the grower to continue this process for 3 more years, permitting allowed.

2019 Stocking Report
The Lake Association stocked 1000 pounds of walleye fingerlings -- totaling approximately 30,000 fingerlings. Fingerlings measured 4-6 inches.
