A Great Beginning
A walleye begins its life as one of 25,000-700,000 eggs. The number varies greatly with the size of the fish, usually being 25,000-50,000 for each pound the female weighs. About the time the ice breaks on the lakes or streams and the water temperature reaches 45-50 degrees, the adult female will move to a spawning area where the males await her arrival. The spawning area may be a tributary stream, a shallow area of a river, or a desirable shoal area of a lake.
