The camp was split into two sessions based on grade and ordinated the event. Awards and t-shirts were also handed out to the participants. Ildogs ran a total of fourdays. Jodi Burrer and Jenna Vrchota organized and co- BE North Dakota Game and Fish De- partment fisheries personnel are gearing up to stock a record number of walleye lakes this year. Fisheries production and develop- ment supervisor Jerry Weigel said 20 years ago approximately 50-70 wa- ters were stocked annually with wall- eye fingerlings, with the number of waters growing to 100 in the early 2000s. This year, 156 waters are scheduled to receive a share of 9 mil- lion fingerlings. "The growth in wall- eye waters is directly correlated to the number of public fishing waters we manage," Weigel said. In 1988, Game and Fish managed 160 public fishing waters totaling 99,098 acres, not including the Mis- souri River System. Today, Weigel said the department manages 415 waters and 345,988 acres, excluding the Missouri River System. "This has put a lot of pressure on the two federal hatcheries in the state, Garrison Dam and Valley City," Weigel added. "We need every Experimental hunt open to archers only An experimental antlerless deer archery season will open this fall on the North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation land south of Bismarck.
