White Bear Lake is primarily managed for walleye (WAE) and muskellunge (MUE). Walleye stocking rates were changed to 2.0 pounds/littoral-acre annually (2,628.0 lbs) in 2006. Muskellunge stocking has consisted of stocking yearlings and adults at a rate of up to 1 fish/littoral acre/year when available. Walleye were sampled in gill nets below the median level for abundance, but above median size for lakes of this type. The gill net catch rate was well within the normal historic range, but reflected a slight decrease from the gill net catch rate recorded in the 2006 assessment (from 3.6 to 2.5 fish/set). The average size of WAE sampled in 2008 was 17.5 inches and 2.2 pounds. Approximately 25 percent of all WAE captured measured 20.0 inches or longer. No Muskellunge were captured during this assessment. Northern Pike (NOP) were sampled above the median level for abundance, but below median levels for mean weight in gill nets. The catch rate for NOP in gill nets lies within the normal historic range for this lake. The average size of NOP captured was approximately 19.2 inches and 1.55 pounds. Yellow Perch were sampled in the second highest abundance ever recorded in gill nets for this lake, but down slightly from the catch rate observed in 2006. The average size of YEP sampled was 7.15 inches and 0.17 pounds. Approximately 17 percent of all YEP sampled measured between 8.0 inches in length or larger. Black crappie were sampled above the median level for abundance in both gear types with the average size of fish sampled being 7.6 inches and 0.24 pounds.
