Dean Rosset Memorial
Lake Geneva Leech Lake Stocking Initiative
Frank Loye and Kevin Butts release Leech Lake strain muskies into Lake Geneva. This was the first of five stockings in memory of club member Dean Rosset. It is also the start of a partnership between the Chicagoland Muskie Hunters and the Wisconsin DNR. In addition to stocking the Leech Lake muskies, we are donating funds to the DNR each year to help fund PIT tagging efforts. The PIT tagging will take place each year during its annual netting/surveying work and in 2022 the DNR will be conducting a genetic study to determine the relative survival and growth rates of the Leech Lake strain muskies we�ve planted compared to the various Wisconsin strain fish the state is putting into the system.

Past President Beau Faris of the Chicagoland Muskie Hunters presents Steve Rusteberg with a $2000.00 check for Project Green Gene. Project Green Gene is a muskellunge research project aimed at identifying differences in growth, survival, and other performance characteristics among populations and stocks of muskellunge. The project is being conducted by the Illinois Natural History Survey, Center for Aquatic Ecology (INHS - CAE). in conjunction with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Central Illinois Muskie Hunters of Muskies Inc. Curtis Wagner, a graduate student at the University of Illinois under the supervision of Dr. David H. Wahl are conducting lake, pond, and radio-telemetry experiments to determine performance differences among genetically-distinct stocks of muskellunge.
