Restocking Lake Wazeecha

Posted Saturday May 27, 2017 by wf_admin

Your support was part of a $6,000 grant to help restock Lake Wazeecha near Wisconsin Rapids in central Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources had reclaimed the 140-acre lake increasing its depth, stabilizing shorelines and reconstructing the dam that created the man-made lake. In order to carry out this project, the water level was substantially drawn down and that severely impacted the lake’s predator species. To re-establish this part of the food chain quickly, this Wildlife Forever grant helped stock the lake with large size fish such as 10-inch northerns. Other fish stocked included walleye and largemouth bass. To ensure sufficient food supplies, 50-gallons of minnows were also added to the lake. The fishing in central Wisconsin is better thanks to this Wildlife Forever grant and your support.
