We saw a few walleye come in over the weekend with reports of not very many being caught. Â 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 Â to arrive from the lake . Very simply put we (and Ft Wayne Â where the Maumee Originates ) need a good rain Â 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 Â to even have had the opportunity fish. typically the weather doesnt even get the first Â fish moving and caught til first week of March– so its still early.
Withe slower and low water use a Â 36- 48 inch leader , 1/2 , 5/8 or 3/4 weight and with the partly sunny day try some of the brighter colors. Â Chartrusse green tail, Shimmer shad tail ( kind of a silvery pearl with sparkle )The berkly power baits Xmas lights and orange Sunkissed Â seemed to work well yesterday Â on a orange head. Also green head /motor oil tail is still working..
