I believe that may actually be 'on the radar' as the saying goes. Obviously since it's a water supply res the owner would have to be fully informed of any possible impacts to water quality and would have to sign off on the species introduction. Still, definitely a good candidate IMHO.
The South Jersey Freshwater Fisheries Forum at Batsto is coming up in a few short weeks here. That would be the best opportunity to nominate some new southern walleye waters. Maybe Assunpink Lake also? Union Lake in Cumberland Co? Both big water bodies.

I'm not sure introducing walleye into any large, deep lake is necessarily a good idea. The NYSDEC tried it in Lake Otsego many years ago, in an effort to reduce the alewife population (how they determined there were TOO MANY alewives is a mystery to me, but whatever). Well, they got their wish: the walleye decimated the alewives and fundamentally changed the fishery. Whereas the smallmouths used to move offshore and chase alewives in the fall, they now pretty much stay on the rockpiles all year and eat more crayfish. Fortunately that lake is stuffed with crayfish, so the bass population is still pretty healthy. As for the walleye, well with no alewives left they literally ate themselves out of house and home; not many left to be had in that lake.

Yes, Walleyes are big time predators. Therefore, not a good idea to introduce them to waterbodies that already have a plethora of predators.

Especially, in this age when the majority of anglers practice catch & release.

They fight like an old rubber boot. So, keep those walleyes & eat them,......the best eating freshwater fish!

Hackettstown Hatchery will always make & stock more.
