Still plenty of time!

Nebraska anglers still have time to join Midwest Walleye Challenge

Nebraska anglers still have plenty of time to enter the Midwest Walleye Challenge and be eligible for prizes, as well as to gather data that biologists can use to help manage walleye populations.

Anglers in 13 states and one Canadian province are participating by entering the waters in which they pursue walleyes and photographing fish they catch.

The collection of angler catch data during the Nebraska challenge, which runs through June 30, can help the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission learn more about Nebraska walleye fisheries. In the process, Nebraska anglers can see how their walleye fisheries compare to others in the Midwest.

So far, Nebraska anglers have entered 124 fish caught from 34 different water bodies. Most popular water bodies have been Lake McConaughy, Elwood Reservoir, Tri-County Canal, and Zorinsky Lake. Walleyes up to 30 inches have been entered by Nebraska anglers, among the largest entered by any state or province.

Weekly prizes have been awarded to several Nebraska participants.

Anglers can choose to be part of the free prize pool or, with a $25 entry, compete for cash prizes.
