We saw a few walleye come in over the weekend with reports of not very many being caught.  Again we saw a few taken at all acces areas-Ft meigs, Bluegrsss , Button wood ,the Jerome Rd Rapids and even a few at Orleans park. This cold front has the ones in the river slowed down and we are still waiting for that first big push  to arrive from the lake . Very simply put we (and Ft Wayne  where the Maumee Originates ) need a good rain  to bring the level up and get those lake fish moving upstream . But all in all we have been very lucky with this unseasonably warm Feb  to even have had the opportunity fish. typically the weather doesnt even get the first  fish moving and caught til first week of March– so its still early.

Withe slower and low water use a  36- 48 inch leader , 1/2 , 5/8 or 3/4 weight and with the partly sunny day try some of the brighter colors.  Chartrusse green tail, Shimmer shad tail ( kind of a silvery pearl with sparkle )The berkly power baits Xmas lights and orange Sunkissed  seemed to work well yesterday  on a orange head. Also green head /motor oil tail is still working..

Partly sunny, with a high near 48. Southwest wind 7 to 9 mph.
A slight chance of rain and snow showers between 11pm and 2am, then a chance of rain showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 37. Southeast wind 3 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Little or no snow accumulation expected.
Showers likely, with thunderstorms also possible after 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 59. Southeast wind 7 to 14 mph becoming south in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
Have fun, be safe and good luck fishing
