Fishing Tips: How to Find Late-Winter Walleyes - 0
by Todd Kuhn
Walleyes make a late-winter/early spring spawning run out of lakes and into the tributaries. Depending on your geographical location, this typically occurs when the water reaches the 40-degree range. Understand not all fish will make the run, however, the ones that do are definitely worth targeting.
To catch them, concentrate on feeder streams, swift moving water, or dams. Focus just slightly downstream where water is calm, as fish congregate in mass. Bucktails or marabou jigs are go-to baits for these spring runners. Basic colors excel, with white, chartreuse, yellow and hot pink being best.
