During the fall is a good time to get your hands on some good-sized walleye. It is at this time, around late September that the fish begin travelling upriver from Georgian Bay. During this time the fish tend to stay in breaks of the current that may be caused by islands, rocks, timber or other obstacles.

These are the kinds of areas that you should try first when looking for a walleye hotspot. During this time as the water is cool, the fish will stay fairly close to the surface. Some people will use slip-sinker rig tipped with a minor whilst others prefer to troll up and down the river at night using a large floating minnow plug.

This behaviour will continue throughout November until the river freezes over for winter. Winter fishing here is very difficult and can be dangerous with the ice. The fishing season ends at the end of March and reopens around May.

The best time of year to fish walleye here in terms of quantity is during early spring. At the start of the season in June the walleye will be in areas close to rapids and stay near the surface of the water. Generally they like to cling to rocky and sandy areas where they have spawned. Trolling a large floating minnow plug is an effective technique here. Go around sunset and keep the plug just below the surface. As they stay their return journey back to Georgian Bay, many anglers will chose to use nightcrawlers. During the day you will find that the walleye move into deeper waters where they find it cooler and more pleasant.

They are most lively when it is dark and early morning and late evenings are good times to get out on the water. The walleye will also be closer to the surface at this time.

There are several particularly good spots along the French River for some decent catches. A few popular spots include Hartley Bay, Crombie Bay and the lower section of the river.
