Spring is notorious for rapidly changing weather, and erratic weather leads to unpredictable fishing. Spring might be coming, but there are still some brutal days out there in the early part of the year.Â Because of the fickle nature of early season walleye, fishing this time of year can be pretty boring until you locate a pocket of fish, but once you do, it can be game on. Patience is the key to making it through those lulls â€“ Stick with what youâ€™re confident in, and youâ€™ll eventually find them.Â When the waterâ€™s still cold, you can have some amazing days â€“ but day in and day out the reality is a little different. There are a lot more one or two fish days to be had than days where you haul in the limits. Keep that in mind as you prepare for your trip and set your expectations accordingly.
Yesterday we saw a few good catches come out of the river again mostly singles and doubles. Â jerome Rd rapids, Ft Meigs area and the towpath seemed to produce the most bites-Some decent action at Blue grass ,Buttonwood and schroders farm area. Â Bluegrass seems to be the area to get some steelhead–very cool to see an increase in this species in the Maumee.
