BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Game and Fish Department says it has stocked a record number walleye fingerlings in state waters.

Fisheries official Jerry Weigel says the Garrison Dam and Valley City national fish hatcheries provided more than 11 million walleye, or about 600,000 more than the previous record set in 1991.

Weigel says 114 lakes and rivers were stocked with walleye, with about 4 million released in Lake Sakakawea.
