In the spring of 2016, the Minnesota DNR utilized Bachelor Lake as a rearing pond for walleye. Approximately 5,000 fry per littoral acre (an acre that is less than 15 feet deep) were stocked in Bachelor Lake. The fall harvest following the stocking of walleye fry produced 538 pounds (244 kg) of fingerlings.
