Just after the winter when the ice has melted and the water temperature has risen to above 30 degrees is when the first of the males should begin to arrive. This is usually around February when the conditions are still very cold and wet making for a potentially unpleasant fishing experience so most people prefer to wait until the springtime. In early April the actual spawn should arrive making this the best time of year for walleye fishing on the Maumee River. By April the water is not at it's highest and the clarity of the water is good. Visibility is important so that the fish can see the lure and are more likely to go for it.

Unsurprisingly then from March to April (the spring run) the Maumee River attracts thousands of fisherman wanting to get in on the action and hoping to make the most of the opportunity. The best location along the River during this time starts at Orleans Park and goes upstream for approximately a 4 mile stretch to the end of Jerome road.

The method of catching the walleye varies from angler to angler with some opting to wade in to cast, some casting from shore and others choosing to fish from a boat further downstream. One of the most popular lures that has had a high success rate is a lead-headed jig with a colored twister tail body. Another popular choice is the Carolina Rigged floating jig with a twister tail. Everyone has his or her own preference so it's all about experimenting to find out what works best for you.

Determining factors as to the quality of fishing, the size of the fish and the number of fish you will be likely to catch include the water temperature and current. Both of which are unpredictable and vary from year to year and day to day. However, the best conditions for a large catch, is warmer water with a swifter current.

Always keep your wits about you when wading a river. The river can rise unexpectedly and it only takes one small trip or a misplaced foot to fall in and get swept downstream. You should go with friend or fish in a crowed area, just in case something goes wrong, someone will see you. Make sure you wear wading boots and waterproof pants and take a change of clothing just in case you fall in. That water is still pretty cold!
