Spring and the Spawn

Spring Walleye Patterns

Every angler who has ever tried to catch the elusive and finicky Walleye knows that spring means spawning when it comes to these fish, and they will follow certain predictable patterns which can be used to catch more fish.

When the water temperatures start to warm, and reach about forty degrees, the Walleye begin the yearly travel to the spawning area, and during this time many anglers catch their daily limits frequently.

The spawning area will be shallow, with rocks and a lot of waves. The rocks and waves make sure that the eggs receive enough oxygen and that they do not get covered with mud or silt.

Near the spawning area will be a drop off or deepening, and this will allow the Walleye cover until the actual spawn occurs.

Once the female Walleye has laid her eggs, she will normally head out to deeper waters and return home, but this is not true for the male of the species. Male Walleye may stick around the spawning area until a few weeks after the spawning is finished.

During the spawn the fish can go into a feeding frenzy, especially the females after the eggs are laid.

The Walleye will move deeper during the day during this time, and then come close to shore at night.

During the day the fish will seek deeper waters and underwater structure to provide protection and cooler waters.

This is when the fish feed and are most active, and many times they are so thick during the early evening that the Walleye will be bumping into each other.

After the spawn has finished, the Walleye will head back to their home waters. Once there, the Walleye take an extended rest, which can last as long as ten days.

After this period there is another feeding frenzy, and fishing can be excellent again. Because the waters are warming the fish will stay out from the shore more, and may become less active during the day when the sun is out.

As summer gets close, the Walleye will follow a specific pattern around the lake. During the days the fish will stay in waters that are cooler and deeper, preferring areas with weeds that are starting to flourish and structures and rocky areas.

Because of their large eyes, which are sensitive to light, these fish prefer darker waters and cover.

Look for areas of the shoreline that have a large number of trees, and areas which have a lot of logs and twigs on the bottom, because these are ideal Walleye hideouts.

During the spring the Walleye may not be very aggressive feeders, because the waters are still cool. The fish will wait for an easy meal, one that does not need a lot of work to catch.

Spring storms can also be a bonus, because the wind creates Walleye chop, and this will make the fish more active when it comes to feeding.

Understanding the spring patterns of Walleye can help make your time spent fishing more productive.
