Welcome to the next edition of my storytelling series introducing you to the creatures in my stationery field guide collections. Today, I’m featuring the Walleye.
Walleyes are mostly olive green and gold in color, and have a distinctive white tip on the lower part of its tail fin. Of course, I had to make my illustration prettier than you might see in real life.
They can be found throughout Canada and the U.S., preferring clear water, staying in the deeper water during the day and shallows at night. They use large, glassy, reflective eyes to hunt at dawn and dusk. Walleye can grow up to 3 to 5 feet long. My brother loves to catch Walleye on his fishing adventures.
Stay tuned for more stories from my field guides to butterflies and leaves.
Thanks for stopping by.
