As first reported by the Daily News

Nature needs an assist from fish hatcheries.

There were no walleyes in Lake Hopatcong in 1987, when most of the state's walleyes lived in the Delaware River, and fishing regulations called them pike perch in the 1950s and '60s.

 

Now, there are big walleyes in Lake Hopatcong, Swartswood Lake, Greenwood Lake, Monksville and Canistear reservoirs and the Delaware River, and last year the hatchery stocked 2.6-million walleyes in these waters.
