In a bid to determine future management of walleye fishing in Lake Nipissing, the province is studying on how well the population is doing. During October, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is laying out nets to catch walleye to determine their length, weight, sex and age. The ministry wants boaters to stay away from the nets which will be marked with orange and white buoys labelled MNRF. The nets will be dispersed randomly across the lake every day over a three week period. This is the 20th year for the annual study and the project is carried out in conjunction with the Nipissing First Nation.
