Staff from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) fisheries division stock Walleye fingerlings in Long Pond in Ledyard Monday, Oct. 26, 2020.
The state annually stocks over 33,000 4-6 inch fingerlings in lakes and ponds across the state.
The Walleye, also known as yellow pike or yellow pickerel, are brought in from Minnesota.
The crew measured 50 of the 1,600 fingerlings destined for the pond to get an average for the size being stocked.
The fingerlings will take 3-4 years to grow to the 18-inch minimum size that anglers are allowed to keep.
