WILLARD, Utah — Walleye at Willard Bay Reservoir are getting a lot of attention these days.

Mid-March through April is spawning season, and state biologists work overtime to catch male and female walleye and then get their eggs and sperm in order to populate fisheries around the state.

The Division of Wildlife Resources let Fox 13's cameras along for the ride.
