We examined the long-term population dynamics of adult stocked muskellunge that occurred with an expanding northern pike population in Lac Court Oreilles, Sawyer County, Wisconsin. Using data collected from 1961 to 1977, we estimated population size, mortality, angler exploitation, and recruitment using POPAN-2 (a multiple mark-recapture model). Accurate estimates of these parameters are necessary if current muskellunge populations are to be maintained and managed effectively.
