Fall Walleye starting to migrate.

Posted on September 23rd, 2016

If you are an avid walleye angler you know that as the days get shorter and temperatures start to drop and get closer to Spring temperatures, walleye start to make a similar migration as in the spring to moving water.

The fall migration though is to feed, not to spawn. This usually happens by them in greater numbers at night, but you can still have excellent fishing for them in river systems or below dams throughout the day. Dave (above), shows-off a chunky walleye he caught in the Gran River. This is an excellent time of year to especially fish the larger moving water systems for walleye like the Niagara, Detroit, St. Clair and even the St. Lawrence Rivers.

Good presentations to use is jigging (if you locate a concentration of walleye), or trolling during the day with a bottom-bouncing sinker/harness/crankbait, or just flat-lining after dark with a Rapala Husky Jerk just below the surface.
