Walleye (Sander vitreus)

Description: Walleye, also known as pickerel or dore, has an elongated body with bulging, glassy eyes; an olive-brown back; yellowish sides that fade into a white belly; and a white band on the lower tip of its tail. As in all members of the perch family, walleye has two distinct dorsal fins with the first being spiny-rayed and the second, soft-rayed. The species eyes possess a silvery reflection, making them appear blind or ‘wall-eyed.’

Habitat: They are often found below dams and rapids.
