Delaware River Walleye Fishing: 10 Things to Know
Specific Tips for Catching Walleye on the Delaware River

Fishing for Walleye in the Delaware River can be a lot of fun. In fact, many anglers find this sport fun and exciting. Walleye are great fish to catch and eat or catch and release. They provide a fun experience and a great adversary when fishing the Delaware.

Here are ten tips for Delaware River walleye fishing:

1. When fishing the Delaware River you will find that it is easier to catch Walleye when fishing at night. While it is possible to catch these fish during the day, nighttime is the time for catching the best fish.

2. In the spring, if you are fishing for quantity, walleye closer to the shoreline will provide your best option.

3. In the spring, red, chartreuse, blue and fire tiger are the best colors for fishing. Try trolling in the top 2 to 4 feet of the water column for the best chance at catching fish.

4. When fishing in the summer you will find that walleye tend to hang out near river mouths, around islands with rocky patches or in thick weeds.

5. During the summer months walleye prefer natural colors such as brown, white, black, or silver. Try heavier jigs that weigh 3/8 ounce or ounce.

6. During extremely hot summer days you can expect to find walleyes in open water at 15 to 35 feet deep. However, at night they will come towards the shore.

7. During fall days you can expect to find walleye upstream. They tend to hang out on the sides of rapids or on the outer edges of wilting weeds.

8. Night fishing in the fall can be a lot of fun. In fact, many people consider this to be the best time for fishing on the Delaware River. This is the time when the large fish come very close to the shore during the night hours. Your best chance for catching these fish is between 10 PM and 3 AM.

9. Fall fishing requires the use of live bait. Using floats with worms or minnows is your best option so that you do not get hung up on a regular basis.

10. In all seasons you will find that larger walleyes tend to stay in the deeper waters. This is not always the case however so be prepared to change things up when needed. However, at night they typically come towards the bank and are usually easier to catch. During the day and night smaller males hang around the bank. If you want quantity fish the bank and if you want size fish the deep holes.

As you can see there are many things to consider when fishing the Delaware River. These tips change depending on the time that you fish and the season. Have fun on the water!
