If you catch a Walleye with a white tag near the second dorsal fin please report the tag #, date and location of capture as well as if the fish was released or harvested.

Tagged fish have been released in the Edward's Narrows (Hunter Lake/Lac Bedout) area of Kipawa Lake, although they may travel large distances throughout the watershed.

I am a graduate student in Fisheries and Aquatic Science with the University of Florida as my major project I am doing an assessment of catch and release survival rates for Walleye. Your participation and reporting of tagged fish is appreciated. Please provide your contact info as well so that your name may be entered into a draw for prizes.

You may report tagged fish via email christina159@ufl.edu or by phone 705-980-1228.

Thank you,

Christina Moreau

I think this is a great thing you are doing. I am very curious to hear about the results you find and hope you will share them with us. I suspect many people on this discussion board and the kipawafishingforum will be very interested to hear of your findings.

Can I ask how many fish were tagged, and also were they caught or netted from kipawa, tagged and released or were they introduced to the lake from a fishery?

I am very curious about your results of their migrations and impacts catch and release have on the fish. Nice work and good luck with your venture.

Does anyone out there know of any results that came about from this tagging project on lac Kipawa?

My son caught 2 tagged fish about an hour apart from one another below the Butney narrows on our 2012 trip. We kept 1 and released the other. The tag read, Eagle River Land management, #2053, PH#819-627-3455.
