The P.N.A. Fisherman’s Club – one of the oldest in Indiana – stocked walleyes in Diamond Lake at Cassopolis recently.
The club pays for stocking walleyes in a Michiana lake each year, a generous act it’s been doing for more than 20 years. This year, 550 fall fingerlings measuring 6 to 8 inches were planted in Diamond.
“We had hoped to stock them in Indiana’s Fish Lake near North Liberty, Ind., but the Indiana DNR said we couldn’t get the permit unless each fish was tested for a virus,” said club spokesman Ted Wasielewski. “That was going to cost an extra dollar per fish.”
