The First Week

The first week of the walleye season has been nothing short of fantastic. The walleyes have finishing spawning in the river and the bite is on. I’m told they have not spawned in the lake. Those fishing the river this week have not had to fish long for a limit of fish. Although there were some reports that all they were catching were slot fish. Water conditions on the river are good with a nice current. The best bite seems to be in the 11′ to 14′ range and the bite is all day long. I fished Friday mid-morning for a hour and kept a limit. Diane and I went out in the afternoon for less than two hours and caught eight nice walleyes. We kept her four and released the rest. We had only two slot fish; nothing big. We used gold/green and silver rattle spoons, but I don’t think it would make much difference; they were hungry.
