The Walleye

Record #:
The walleye was first reported in North Carolina in 1869 in the French Broad River, and over the years it has become an important game fish in the state. Fishermen like it because it readily strikes artificial lures and is among the finest of freshwater fishes in flavor. The walleye did not get its name by accident; their eyes are very large in comparison to the eyes of other fishes. Cornell discusses the walleye's habitat, game management, and importance to sports fishermen.
