Its important to know that walleye donâ€™t go by a typical calander, a number of factors go into when they move , the most important being water temperature. When they sense the warming trend the male walleye begin their journey , sometimes arriving at the staging site as much as a month in advance of the spawn itself. the females donâ€™t arrive until the water has reached an ideal temperature to ensure the success of the reproductive activity. This is usually around 45 degrees give or take a few degrees. The pace at which the sun warms the water determines the pace of the spawn , shallow water warms faster than deep water so the spawn proceeds quickly during low water periods. Also a sudden cold snap or late freeze can throw a wrench in the walleyes plans, slowing down or postponing the spawn as the females hold on to their eggs.
Yesterday we saw a lot of doubles and triples..some limits but not as many as the weekend. The cold nights slowed em jsut a touch. ALOT of good fish were caught, more in store today. Orleans , White street and the Towpath will be the good areas today.
Have fun, be safe and good luck fishing
