[DNR] Muskies showing up in Maumee River
Start Date: 4/24/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/24/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
DNR officials are getting reports from anglers that muskies are occasionally being caught in the Maumee River below the Hosey Dam in Fort Wayne.

The largest to date was caught in early April, measured 42.5 inches long and weighed 28 pounds.

Biologists are unsure where the muskies are coming from—none are stocked directly into the river.

Muskies have been stocked in Allen County’s Lake Everett each year since 2010, but its outlet drains to the Eel River, not the Maumee. Likewise, a check with Ohio DNR biologists confirmed that no muskies are stocked in the Maumee watershed within the Buckeye state.

Right now, the best guess is they came downstream via the St. Joe River from Ball Lake in Steuben County. Muskies were stocked there annually until 2009.
