Loc: benbrook
I was throwing for shad at benbrook last night and caught a few small fish about 3 to 4 inches. They were best identified as walleye fry. I've fished benbrook for 20 years and never caught a walleye. Anybody ever caught or heard of walleye in benbrook?

3 or 4 inches?I can see how a river perch might be mistaken for a small walleye..

Sounds like a little sucker-fish, to me...

It would be very nice to find a place to catch walleyes. They are the best freshwater fish I have ever eaten, by far.

Keith,
Good call. I never even heard of a log perch. But, I looked it up and it completely makes sense. Thank you. And, here is a link with more information.

They're most likely Log Perch. I see someone's already mentioned that, but that's almost certainly what they were. Definitely not Walleye.

Texas has several species of Log Perch, including the standard Log Perch, The Texas Log Perch, and the Bigscale Log Perch.

In late 2000 or early 2001 I caught fingerling Walleye in thrownet at PK, just before the first outbreak of GA. Never caught one out of Benbrook and I have been fishing it since I was 4 (first fish I remember catching was a 4lb LMB on a cane pole) and I am 52 now, neither have I heard of a Walleye coming out of that lake. However they did stock Lake Weatherford with around 5 million Walleye.
Also never saw a gar in the lake and always heard that the salinity was too low for gar to be present.

That would be all the dead Walleye that died shortly after stocking in the '80's. Since they didn't survive well on Weatherford. Or most of the other lakes TPWD threw them into years back.

there was actually 1 or 2 mounted and on the wall in the weatherford marina many years ago. yes, there were a few caught- and one guy claimed that there were still some in the lake by the damn in the deep holes.... my dad never saw him catch one, but he was always out in the middle of the lake jigging for them and swore up and down he still could catch them....

I stand corrected..Just figured our water was way to hot for a stable walleye population..But on a research of river perch they spawn sooner than most fish and may attribute to the recent catches..
