DNR happy with the way fish are growing on new Lake Delton

So far, so good for the fish on the new Lake Delton.

The state Department of Natural Resources measured the fish by momentarily stunning them so they'd float to the surface.

Fisheries supervisor Scot Stewart said fish were discovered on all parts of the lake, and the walleye averaged 10 inches.

He said walleye and bass should reach their legal size limits within the next two years.

Lake Delton got washed away almost a year and a-half ago, after heavy rains and floods eroded parts of the shoreline and the water got dumped down the Wisconsin River.

The lake was refilled earlier this year, and the re-stocking of fish began in the spring.
