That would be good if a population got going down there. They are the best tasting fish there is and they can get huge when the conditions are right. When I was really young and fished at Lake Powell a lot, it was the same deal there hard to find a walleye. Now they are extremely abundant and guys are going there just to fill limits of them. They don't really use flooded brush so Lake Mead would be ideal I would think. _________________

Its been awhile since I fished for walleye on the St. Joesph river in Michigan, but I remember walleye had a 15" or 18" size minimum if you wanted to keep them. The DNR was very strict on this policy.
I remember the biggest one I ever caught was 26". not sure how much it weighed but they are such a cool looking fish. I hate the taste of fish so I would usually throw them back. That was until our neighbor found out I was consistently catching walleye and begged my parents to have me keep them so they could eat them. I never understood why they wanted them so bad until now. Apparently they are one of the best tasting fish to eat. I remember the meat being very white.
It would be very cool if Lake Mead would have a abundant population of Walleye. Just hard since they need the cold water and fighting off the stripers. If i remember right walleye have pretty sharp teeth. Almost as big as Northern Pike.
