Very slow walleye bite yesterday. We had reports of only a few being caught, and those were at Jerome rd rapids , bluegrass island and button wood areas.  The radar shows a a much needed rain system  coming our way. Once this rain brings the water level up we should see a significant change in the numbers of walleye moving upriver. Like i have said before its still early and its been great even having the opportunity to fish in the sunshine of February.


Still slower and low water use a  36- 48 inch leader , 1/2 , 5/8 or 3/4 weight and with the overcast day day try some of the stick with some of the darker colors . We havent seen any consistancsy yet with what is the hot color  The shimmer shad tail ( kind of a silvery pearl with sparkle )The berkly power baits Xmas lights and purple metalic flake  seemed to generate a few bites  yesterday  on a orange head. Also green head /motor oil tail is still working..
