Quality Ohio Walleye Fishing

Where to Find Quality Walleye

Ohio is one of those states blessed with plenty of quality walleye fishing. There are many lakes, rivers and reservoirs that contain healthy populations of this sought after fish. The first step to landing an Ohio Walleye is to know where the best waters are.

Ohio walleye spend the majority of their time in the deep water during the summer. Spring and fall are considered the peak seasons for walleye fishing in Ohio. Floating jigs with white, yellow or fluorescent twister tails do well with Ohio walleye. Crankbaits and spinners are productive especially during the summer season. A bottom-bouncer tipped with either a minnow or night crawler rarely fails to attract a walleye.

Of all the lakes in Ohio, Lake Erie is a must-stop for the serious walleye angler. In 1999, a sixteen pound walleye came from this lake and claimed the state record. Lake Erie is a good size water body that provides plenty of food and cover for its walleye. The Toledo shipping channel is particularly productive. Several of the hot spots require a boat in order to reach them.

Since Lake Erie is so big, finding the walleye can be a challenge. Hiring a charter service can save time and help an angler make the catch. Trolling and crank baits are killer combinations on this water.

Not all good fishing holes in Ohio require a boat. There are several rivers that can provide great shoreline action. In the spring, most Ohio walleye will head inland to spawning beds. Both Maumee River and the Sandusky River are favorite spots for walleye.

Both rivers have several favorite haunts for walleye. Anglers will find the area from the Conant Street Bridge to the end of Jerome Road the most productive on the Maumee River. The area from Brady's Island to Rodger Young Park is the most fruitful on the Sandusky River.

Ohio does have a lot of restriction when it comes to walleye fishing. In general, anglers are limited to a take of four walleye per day from March 1 until April 30. After this, the take usually increases to a six per day limit. Walleye must also be a minimum of fifteen inches in order to keep.

Maumee and Sandusky Rivers also have hook restrictions. From March 1 until May 1, anglers are limited to a single hook of no more than one-half inch. Lures also cannot exceed this hook size.

These rivers are also closed to nighttime fishing. Walleye fishing is off limits from sunset to sunrise during the March through May first period. The area from the Ballville Dam to the Toledo Edison power line on the Sandusky it completely off limits during the spawning run.

These restrictions only apply to certain areas on the rivers. Check the state fishing guides for specific area restrictions. This is also a great place to double check the limit regulations since those can change from year to year.

Ohio has many great spots for walleye anglers to visit but their waters tend to be seasonal. Rivers and tributaries are more productive during spring and fall while the lakes are the place to hit during the summer. Ohio also has several restrictions in place to protect their walleye populations. Knowing the when and where to be on Ohio waters can definitely make walleye fishing a joyful experience.
