History & Status of the Fishery
The FPDCC collects walleye from Tampier Lake for brood purposes to support some of their supplemental stocking needs. Rooted aquatic vegetation is sparse because wind driven re-suspension of soft sediments impacts water clarity and thus light penetration. Periodic fish surveys are conducted by either the IDNR or FPDCC Fisheries Staff to evaluate the fishery.

Annual stockings include: 400 8? northern pike, 10,500 2? walleye, and 3000 8? channel catfish.

Approximately 17 species live in this system, and also include: green sunfish; pumpkinseed sunfish; hybrid sunfish; yellow perch; yellow bass; black, yellow and brown bullhead; common carp; and gizzard shad.

Tampier is very nice place for fishing, picnicking and kayaking. It's also great place if you just wanted to get outdoors, but in a peaceful environment.
