How fast do walleye grow?

fast grow walleye

It generally takes three to four years for a walleye to grow to 14 inches in length (minimum length) and six to eight years for a walleye to reach 22 inches in length. This is a big investment of time to raise our walleyes to harvestable size, when you consider it only takes six months to raise a pheasant or duck large enough to harvest. Please consider our total impact on our fisheries resources when you decide how many and what sizes of fish to harvest in a day or in a year.
