Which warm-water fish spawn and reproduce on there own? Or do all of them except wipers.
Most do, and most hybrids dont. Wipers and Tiger Musky are hybrids that dont reproduce. But all the others will reproduce if the water tempatures are right and the lake bottom contains the right structure for them to do so.

They usually stock wiper as fry, about that size 2-4 inches. But white bass look the same as fry and will naturally reproduce if they are in the water system so you could also be seeing them.

Saugeye are another hybrid that do not spawn on thier own successfully.  Hatchery stocking is necessary.  Though saugeye can spawn with walleye and saugers successfully.

That is one reason the DOW supposedly started stocking Saugeyes in irragation reservoirs...walleyes supposedly are more likely to swim downstream with water being let out than saugeyes are...that and I believe saugeyes can tolerate warmer and more turbid water...

Zman was right about Saugeye! They also tend to roam shallow more than walleye's do supposably?

Walleye actually spawn successfully at Horsetooth and Carter Resevoirs.

Many hybrids make spawning runs, thats why they think Tiger Muskies are reproducing in some lakes up north. Its instinct.

Many hybrids spawn but it is a false spawn. They lay eggs, the males milt them but they are sterile. They go through a lot of work for nothing!
