Eutrophic Lake Walleye Fishing

Finding the Walleye in Eutrophic Lakes

When an angler is on the prowl for walleye, they can find them in many kinds of water bodies. Reservoirs, rivers and lakes can all hold this super predator. Eutrophic lakes can hold really big dandies if you are on the mood for a hunt.

Fertile eutrophic lakes are filled with plenty of plant life that can feed a large population of baitfish. Naturally, they can also feed a large population of walleye.

The bed of these lakes is usually a heavy silt material which isn't good for spawning walleye. Since they prefer rock or gravel for their hatcheries, walleye in eutrophic lakes have a hard time reproducing. Even though there is plenty to eat, these lakes can run out of walleye with out some human intervention.

Many eutrophic lakes need a good restocking program in order to maintain any walleye numbers. There are some lakes that have been given artificial spawning grounds in order to help maintain the walleyes. The populations in these types of lakes are delicate. Lakes that sit around the 25 foot mark can suffer several fish kills during the winter months.

On the plus size, walleyes that manage to survive in eutrophic lakes will grow big quickly. There is plenty to eat and many places to hide. So these are great places to fish for that trophy-size walleye.

Eutrophic lakes will go through quite a change throughout the season. After winter, they will be reasonably clear and easy to fish. Plant life will just start to emerge making navigating the lake easy.

As the weather and water warms, the vegetation level will grow and become more dense. Algae are predominant in these types of lakes. The concentration will increase over the season.

Eutrophic lakes are never really clear. The lake bed is a silt material that easily gets stirred and mixed into the water. As activity in the lake increases from spring on to fall, so does the level of silt in the water. Visibility diminishes as the algae, silt and growing plant life increase.

Early spring is probably the easiest time to fish. Since the plant beds are just starting to emerge, you should be able to troll without any problem. The water will be the most clear this time of year.

Once summer sets in, you will have to worry about navigating the abundant plant life without getting tangled. Casting and vertical jigging will be the best presentations at this point. Choose crankbaits or spinnerbaits that have an anti-weed design in order to reduce snags. Since visibility is reduced, opt for some rattles to increase the effect of your bait.

Once summer fades into fall, you will find the walleye to be more aggressive and eager for food. A minnow or night crawler harness will work very well. Remember that the water is still very murky so go with bigger bait to make it easier for the walleye to see.

Eutrophic lakes yield large walleye because of their abundance of food. The same fertile waters can also make it harder to catch the fish. If you learn the best way to navigate these lakes it won't take long to pull out the walleye that you can brag about.

Take care,
