Andrew Martinsen's Walleye Fishing Update

Washington Walleye Hotspots

Lake Bryan, Moses Lake and More

Washington state is full of opportunities for some good walleye fishing. There are numerous major lakes here that have an abundance of walleye as well as many rivers, particularly those that are connected to the lakes. Some of the most popular walleye fishing locations in Washington include Banks Lake, Moses Lake, Potholes Reservoir and Lake Bryan.

Walleye spawn in the spring, so at this time wherever possible they will make there way into feeder streams in search of shallow shoals. The deep lakes of Washington make for the prefect environment for these fish, which like to vary between rocky areas near the surface when the sun is down and the cooler water in the depths when the sun is up.

Banks Lake is connected to the Columbia River and is currently producing healthy, fat and fast growing walleye. During July and August jerkbaits and crankbaits have been successful in shallow waters in the late evening. One of the best times of day to fish here is between 6pm and midnight.

Bottom bouncers are also popular at both Banks Lake and Moses Lake and are a great method to use to locate a school of walleye. Then you may want to try vertical jigging. Another good technique used a lot at Moses Lake is trolling crankbaits. Walleye seem to stick close to the weeds lining the lake here so that it a good place to start looking.

Once you locate a walleye you have probably found a school so spend some time trolling back and forth in the area and see if anything bites. If nothing happens move on and continue searching somewhere else.

Potholes Reservoir and Moses Lake have the best walleye in April, when the fish are coming off their yearly spawn. Walleye appear in an absolute abundance at Frenchmans Wasteaway where the lake meets the reservoir and this is far away the best time of year for walleye fishing.

Small jigs are the preferred technique using either 1/16th or 1/8th ounces tipped with a leech or crawler. Colour choice often comes down to personal preference and past successes but in these waters at this time of year chartreuse, glow in the dark and white are the recommended colours.

The fish tend to be in water no deeper than 3-4 feet and for best results fish as close to the bottom of the surface as possible. Another effective alternative is using jerkbaits or shallow diving cranks and all of the best fishing is to be had at night. That doesn't mean to say however that fishing in the daytime will be bad. Both the reservoir and Moses Lake continue to be a great fishing spot into the summer when the favoured technique is generally to troll spinners with nightcrawlers and leeches, which attract the walleye in the deeper waters.
