Walleye (Pickerel)

Walleye are large, elongated fish. Their back is olive-green to brown; sides paler with yellow flecks. They have no distinct blotches or bands as adults. They have a white tip on their lower tail fin, with their spiny and soft dorsal fins separated. Their large mouth extends below back edge of eye, and they have large teeth. They typically grow anywhere between 35.5 cm – 58.4 cm, and weigh 0.68 – 1.36 kilograms. The Ontario record for largest Walleye is 10.1 kilograms. 

The Walleye or Pickerel can be found throughout Ontario, and are especially common in the Great Lakes basin and Northern Ontario. Their habitat includes a range of river and lake conditions. This includes anywhere from cold, clear water to warm, weedy and stained water. They like soft mud bottoms to flooded timber, rubble or bedrock, and preferred cover – things like weed, wood, and rocks.
