Got my 2 walleye tags for Wabamun. I have another lake near my cabin with a limit of One walleye( No tags). Does that mean Any size as a keeper?
Don excellent technical paper! Just laymans thought, most good walleye lakes in Alberta seem to have a large spawning stream like Owl river in Lac la Biche. Wabamun only has small creek with the weir. May not allow a good spawn rate.
Also pike seemed to not be in large stream during walleye spawn and perhaps not eating young walleye for lunch.

Given department of fisheries and Oceans calls walleye yellow pickerel, and Sask and Manitoba fishing regs also has pickerel in them (at least the last ones I got a couple of years ago) I guess not everyone has gotten on the USA band wagon to change the Canadian Common name to a USA common name yet.
Perhaps your correct and Canadians are just dummier than our American neighbors to the south .

Please note on the DFO link below you do not see walleye referred to just pickerel,

Very interesting 20,000+ tons off Yellow Pickerel taken in Ontario and 15,000 + tons taken in Manitoba. As mentioned no walleye fishery. A lot of fish catch, much more than us guys with a pole and string.
