My Dad and I are going to be fishing the Kawartha lakes for walleye the second week in September weather permitting. Any suggestions for success?

Posted on August 20th, 2021

Second weed in Sept. should be excellent fishing in the Kawartha Lakes, ON for Walleye. Look for them off the large weed beds in any of the Kawartha Lakes where the depth is anywhere from 7-12′ deep.

Vibrax Spinner.
A Vibrax spinner tipped with half a nightcrawler and fished close to the bottom off weeds can be deadly for Walleye.


If there is a low wind you can drift and fish a #3 Vibrax spinner tipped with half a nightcrawler and fish it close to the bottom close to the weeds. If it’s calm you can cast the spinner/worm combination or even slow-troll close to the weeds. The key is for the spinner to work near the bottom slowly. You can also cast 1/4 or 3/8oz black bucktail jigs and work them very close to the weeds and in the weeds pockets. You don’t have to tip the hair jig with a worm.  Lastly, you can slow-troll a worm harness with one or two split-shot sinkers about 16″ up the line and fish them also close to the bottom near the weeds. Hope you have a great trip…God bless you.
