The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says staffers will begin collecting walleyes Monday night at Sherman Reservoir, when the dam
is closed, and then during that week at Merritt Reservoir and Lake McConaughy.
Anglers and boaters must avoid Game and Parks boats and nets at
all three reservoirs.
At Lake McConaughy, a portion of the face of Kingsley Dam will
be closed to fishing from sunset to sunrise. The northern third of
the dam will be barred to bank and boat anglers.
It could take up to 10 days to gather the nearly 73.5 million
eggs needed to meet walleye stocking requests for Nebraska waters
