Remember Safe Winter Driving Skills
Published on 12/14/2017 under News Yesterday's widespread snow lead to a number of vehicles involved in minor accidents or leaving the roadway. It also prompted local officials to remind drivers to remember their winter driving skills. As they do each December, the DoT recently offered up some tips to help drivers reach their winter destinations safely. First, before you leave, make sure snow has been removed from your vehicle including your lights. And make sure to use those lights in limited visibility conditions. When on the road, leave plenty of room for maintenance vehicles and plows to pass. Also leave yourself additional space for braking, including looking out down the road further than you normally do. Finally, don't get overconfident in your 4x4 vehicle. Remember that it may help you get going quicker, but it won't help you stop any faster. The DoT noted that many 4x4 vehicles are heavier than passenger vehicles and actually may take longer to stop. And simply give yourself a little extra time to reach your destination, and drive at appropriate speeds for the conditions.

DNR Stocks Record Number of Large Walleye Fingerlings
Published on 12/14/2017 under News Wisconsin anglers continue to benefit from the Wisconsin Walleye Initiative, which again stocked a record number of the fish this year. The DNR announced this week that nearly 882,000 larger fingerling walleye were placed in state waterways. Justine Hasz, fisheries director for the Department of Natural Resources"We're very pleased that the investment made to hatcheries through the Wisconsin Walleye Initiative and the hard work of our fisheries crews and our partners are once again paying off for Wisconsin anglers." The Initiative arrived with the 2013 budget. In the year prior to its implementation the DNR stocked 142,000 larger fingerlings. The funding has also paid to upgrade state, tribal and private hatcheries in Wisconsin. The large fingerlings are just one piece of the walleye population, the DNR says that 1.4 million small fingerlings are stocked each year, in addition to a number of walleye fry. And despite stocking efforts, the DNR says natural reproduction accounts for more than 80 percent of the walleye caught in Wisconsin.
