Reservoir Walleye Fishing

Finding Walleye in Reservoirs

The best time to try to fish for walleye in reservoirs is during the pre-spawning period, which can begin in the fall, particularly amongst male walleye. At this time, the walleye is inclined to travel upstream, which often leads it to reservoirs.

Typically, pre-spawning males are hungry and aggressive, which can make them fairly easy to catch. Shortly after the males have arrived, the large females will also move in. However, they are renowned for being slightly fussier eaters and are, therefore, notoriously more difficult to catch. This does not mean that it is impossible to catch a large female walleye, but it can certainly prove trickier.

For most anglers, the first spot to try is the section of water below the dam. While it is true that this is an odds on favorite for a good catch, the likelihood is that it will be filled with numerous other boats. If you would like to find a little peace and quiet, you might like to try sailing downstream. Not only will it allow you to fish peacefully, but also the walleye here will be much less pressured. So, you stand a good chance of making some nice catches.

Creek arms will be particularly attractive to walleye during the pre-spawning season. If you can find a large arm, you could find that it is prime spawning ground for walleye. When fishing a creek arm, it is a good idea to begin at the outside points where the creek and river channels meet. This can often provide a perfect feeding flat, which is likely to contain a high concentration of walleye. If this stretch of water also has some submerged timber, or rocks, then you may have really hit the jackpot. Because the walleye has easy access to the deeper waters, it is almost certain to feed in a spot such as this.

As well as large creeks, you may discover smaller creeks, which are often overlooked. However, this water will be murky and is likely to be comparatively warm, so, it is a haven for a multitude of fish. Walleye tend to be opportunistic eaters. Therefore, if you can find a source of their food then you have a great chance of making a good catch.

You may also like to try your luck at bends in the reservoir, as these are another favorite spot of the walleye. These curves can cause a force in water flow, which attracts the walleye. You may find that you can make a catch in as little as two feet of water in these situations.

You will find that your success rate in all of the above locations is increased by the presence of a moderate to strong current. Unfortunately, where there is no current, walleye are much less active. In fact, they are apt to become rather lazy and they are likely to remain in the safety of the depths. In this instance, it is not impossible to make a catch, but it will require more patience.

Reservoirs are an excellent choice when fishing for walleye and they can provide some trophy catches if you know where to look.
