This never ending high water has me looking at the seasons differently this year. Seems like all the seasons the last few years have been pushed back a few weeks .  Winter is ending in April, spring is just starting in late May, Summer runs til mid October.. that type of thing . I remember that back in the 70’s all the “leading” scientists told us the earth was going to be covered in ice – the beginning of the next ice age.  Now they say the earth is cooking. This I do know..this year is wet..wet ..wet. Hey the world changes and we as outdoorsmen adapt. So as the water in the Maumee has been high just about the last 5 weeks its been tough to get those walleye and white bass a good portion of those days. So adapt, there are many other species in that river that give great sport and are fine to eat as well. Look at theses photos  Glenn went out and got some big ole fish in the last few days, Catfish, alligator  gar, and buffalo carp. The big fish are the ones that are out prowling around in this heavy water. 

On the river White bass and walleye are going to be close in to shore to get out of that big heavy current. – Orleans Park and white street. Also with these high waters the white bass are filling up the creeks(swan creek in particular is chock full of white bass right now. 

Have fun, be safe and good luck fishing
