Where the Walleye Are
Tips on Fishing for Walleye on Rivers and Lakes


Weather plays a big role in the life of a walleye but river and lake fish deal differently with the changes. Cold fronts can be action killers on lakes and the walleye will go deep, often becoming languid in an effort to escape the change in the temperature. It can take several days for the fish to return to normal.

River walleye aren't as affected by cold fronts and will return to normal behavior much sooner than their lake brethren.

Heavy rains and flooding can cause chaos to the River Walleye's world. When the water rises, walleye will often seek out an escape from the powerful current. Look near any structure, natural or man-made, that create a break in the current. Downed timber are also hot spots to concentrate on.

When fishing near structures, cast just beyond them and let the current carry the bait past the fish. Try to keep the lure as close to the edge of the structure as possible. Walleye don't like strong currents, but will go after something tasty if it is close enough. If you are working down timber areas, run a crankbait just above or on the edge of the brush. Keep your retrieve slow but fairly steady in order to prevent the bait from getting snagged.

Depending on the strength of the storm, rains can alter the lake environment as well. Rain can stir up the water and decrease visibility. When walleye can't see, they will stick close to structure or vegetation. They will want to be as close to food sources as possible.

Now is an excellent time to break out the noisiest and flashiest lures in your arsenal. This will make it easier to get the attention of the walleye you seek. Just make sure you keep your presentation slow and give the fish time to get a strike on your offering.

Currents exist in both types of water and they can be your best friend or your worst enemy when fishing rivers. The effects of currents are less noticeable when fishing larger body of water like lakes. When fishing rivers, use the flow of the river to your advantage and let it carry the bait past the walleye at a natural pace. This works great to incite a strike as long as the current isn't too strong.

Most walleye presentations work well on either body of water, but shape and size can make a difference on rivers. Round or bullet-head jigs ranging from 1/8 to a ounce are ideal because their shape offers less resistance against the current. Vertical jigging, stationary jigging and even trolling can be successful as long as you are conscience of the current and what it will do to the appearance of the bait.

Quality walleye can be found in both rivers and lakes. There are natural movement and behavioral patterns that apply no matter where the walleye are. Understanding the slight differences and subtle changes in technique can make you deadly no matter what waters you are fishing.
