Muskellunge Club Of Wisconsin

Stocking Data

The Muskellunge Club of Wisconsin's historical stocking efforts go back many years and have occurred on several different lakes throughout Wisconsin. Although our recorded muskie stocking data is only beginning to take shape, we intend to identify as many of the stocking events as we can find. The State of Wisconsin requires a stocking permit each time our club stocks muskies so we've solicited the help of the Wisconsin DNR to locate our club's stocking records. Be sure to let us know if you have any MCW muskie stocking information that is not recorded in our muskie stocking data table so your information can be entered.

MCW has partnered with the Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies Inc (MCMI) several times over the years to make a powerful impact by stocking more muskies than either club could do on their own. In addition, MCW has also combined efforts with John Laimon and the organizers of the 3 Charlies Muskie Tournament, Waukesha County, and Gollon Bait and Fish Farm to improve the fisheries where we have stocked muskies.

The following highlights the more recent muskie stocking events where MCW has been involved. A MCW Stocking Statistics slick sheet is also available which summarizes these more recent and local muskie stocking events.
