Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update

Ontario Walleye Fishing

Prime Walleye Fishing in Ontario

Ontario boasts the best walleye fishing in the world and is home to a record-breaking walleye catch. The residents of Ontario often claim that it is "walleye country." Indeed, the walleye thrives in Ontario?s numerous (over 7,000) streams, rivers and lakes, which makes it the perfect place for anglers in search of walleye. Ontario is renowned for its ?trophy? walleyes, but if you just want to catch a few fish for a traditional Ontario shore lunch, you can find the perfect lake for that, too.

Some of the most popular fishing lakes in Ontario include Lake Ontario, Eagle Lake, Rainy Lake, Lake of the Woods, Lake Nipigon and Lac Seul. All of these lakes not only offer wonderful opportunities for catching fish, but also the wonderful panoramas of Canada.

Seasons in Ontario

In Ontario, the fishing season begins in late spring, when the walleye are dispersing from their spawning locations (weed beds, river-mouths, sunken islands, shallow bars etc). This is prime walleye catching time, because, during this period, the walleye is very hungry and will more often than not take an angler?s bait.

During the Canadian summer, its resident walleye fish are predominantly found in deep waters. However, the Ontario walleye is known to move to the shallows on windy days or if it is cloudy and overcast. The glorious summer mornings and evenings are considered the best times to fish for walleye in Ontario, as it is then that the fish venture into the shallows to feed.

In the fall, the walleye in Ontario tend to move even deeper, principally, to feed on perch, smelt and ciscoes. Therefore, many anglers recommend using larger bait, such as 3-6 inch minnows, to attract walleye during the fall.

Useful Tactics

During the late spring and early summer, which is the prime walleye catching period, you may find it helpful to employ lures that imitate yellow perch or shiners, as these are the main foods of the walleye. It is a good idea to troll your lures among weedlines and shoals, where the walleye is likely to go come to feed.

When considering which bait to use, remember that walleye are much more attracted to live bait. Minnows, leeches and worms are all tempting to an Ontario walleye.

It can be beneficial to use bottom bouncer and/or slip sinker rigs and where possible drift, so that you do not alert the walleye to your presence.

As mid-summer approaches, the walleye will migrate to deeper waters. However, the above tactics will still prove useful. Although, you will need heavier jigs and rigs to fish deeper. In addition, you may find deep-diving lures very beneficial when trying to catch walleye in the summer.

Catching a Trophy Walleye in Ontario

If you are looking to catch a trophy walleye, it is advisable to use trolling crankbaits. In Ontario?s beautifully clear water, it is a good idea to use crankbaits with a natural finish such as black, white, or metallic. On the other hand, if you are fishing in silted waters, it is wise to use crankbaits of orange, red or green.
