1,000 true muskies released in ponds in Salt Lake City.
One of the largest sport fish in the country will soon be raised right here in Utah.

On June 16, a total of 1,000 true muskies from Nebraska were stocked into ponds at the Lee Kay Public Shooting Range in Salt Lake City.

They're small now, but in three years, they'll be mature enough to reproduce. When the muskies reach that stage, biologists with the Division of Wildlife Resources will take milt from the males. Then they'll use that milt to fertilize eggs from Northern pike.

After the eggs are fertilized, Utah will have the first batch of tiger muskies ever produced in the state.

More and more anglers are fishing for tiger muskies, says Drew Cushing, warm water sport fisheries coordinator for the DWR. I can see why: they're an impressive fish. When you catch one of these monsters, they put up a big fight.
