Did DEC have anything to say at their Clayton meeting regarding where "they" think they are coming from? There has always been a population of walleye in the river. Are more people actually targeting them thus more number showing up? Techniques have changed? Almost any point along the river, american or canadian side, or shoal along the channel, have walleye present. I have heard tales for years of the number of walleye seen by divers but they were mostly being caught by bass fisherman by accident, not specifically targeted. There must be some areas that they gather to spawn along the river but no one is talking .
