WADING TO BLUEGRASS ISLAND IS NOT PERMITTED
The river is warming up quickly after yesterdays sunshine. Today is going to be a little more chilly with highs only in the 30s. The walleye are definitely on the move upstream . Walleye spawn over rock, rubble, gravel brush and similar substrate in rivers in water 1 to 6 feet deep, where current clears away fine sediment and will cleanse and aerate eggs. Male walleye move into spawning areas in early spring when the water temperature may be only a few degrees above freezing. The larger females arrive later. Spawning reaches its peak when water temperature ranges from 42 to 50 degrees. A five-pound female deposits more than 100,000 eggs. Neither parent cares for the eggs in any way. Its important to know that walleye don’t go by a typical monthly calendar, 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 don’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.
So all that being said and taken into account, we will continue to monitor the weather conditions , water temp ,level and pass on any information we gather
Have fun , be safe and good luck fishing.
