Walleye & Sauger
Walleye fishing in Missouri is heating up, as the Missouri Department of Conservation has been stocking this popular game fish in lakes and reservoirs that can best support it. Stockton, Lake of the Ozarks, Bull Shoals and numerous other reservoirs should soon have an impressive walleye fishery.
This relative of the walleye is also called the Jack salmon, spotted Jack and sand pike. It's found mostly in the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and suitable tributaries, as well as the Eleven Point River in southern Missouri, mainly in flowing water and often swift current.
