Catching Walleyes in Streams
Top Tips for Stream Walleye Fishing


Fishing streams is a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful way to while away the hours. However, with the right techniques, not only will you have a fun-filled day, but you can also achieve great success in catching some of those stream walleye. Many streams are well stocked with walleye all year round, but late spring and early summer are the periods when the trophy fish can be caught.

Firstly, when fishing in a stream, it is always a good idea to use the spaced-shot mini-hook rig, which is recommended by many anglers who fish streams for walleye. In terms of bait, you cannot really go wrong with minnows and leeches, but you may like to try other baits, such as night crawlers, or worms. Particularly during the summer months, walleye are ravenous and will be keen to eat whatever tasty morsel you place on your hook.

You may find it very useful to employ spinners with a metal body, it is advisable to use ones that are gold or silver colored. These spinners provide more resistance in the water and will, therefore, allow the angler to fish deep and aid a slow retrieve, which is always advisable when fishing for stream walleye. If you are planning to fish the deep pools of the stream, the middle of the day is the very best period, as this is when the walleye is found lounging in the depths.

Fishing in the evening can also be very successful. Throughout the evening hours, you will find walleye in the shallow, fast-moving waters. While fishing the stream at night, be sure to cast your line upstream and retrieve downstream. For example, you may find it beneficial to gradually move downstream while letting out a little of the line. Once you have a bite, try to retrieve as slowly as possible (you may be able to feel the blades clicking against the rocks).

When you feel that your bait has been grasped, it is a good idea to, instantly, set the spinner hooks, although, many anglers find it beneficial to release a little line for a few seconds first. This is particularly relevant if you are in search of a trophy walleye and are using a mini-hook, because you will need to allow the fish a chance to swallow the hook.

If you are fishing deep waters during the middle of the day, always use live bait where possible and leave it on the bottom of the stream for extended periods. This will require a lot of patience, but it can pay dividends in the end. However, this may not always work. Therefore, if you feel that the fish are not responding, try very gradually pulling your line in.

The spinner jig is a favorite of anglers and is considered the best option for fishing along the bottom of the stream, but it does require stealthy retraction to ensure that you keep your bite. When using plugs and spoons, anglers advocate reaching the bottom and then pulling with slow, extended motions. The vibrations caused by this movement should attract all of the walleye from the area.
