What is it?

Our photographers have been busy exploring the intricacies of the Missouri outdoors. See if you can guess this month’s natural wonder. The answer is revealed on the inside of this back cover.



On the back cover and right are walleye. The fish’s large, opaque eyes are efficient at gathering light, allowing them to feed during lowlight conditions and nighttime hours. Excellent sporting qualities, large size and firm, tender flesh make the walleye one of our most important game fishes. The Conservation Department has been stocking this popular game fish in Stockton, Lake of the Ozarks, Bull Shoals and numerous other reservoirs, and they should soon have an impressive walleye fishery.
