When Is The Best Time Of The Year To Walleye Fish?
What is the best time and season to go fishing for Walleye? Well this question has a couple answers. Spring is one of the best times to fish for walleye. Walleye feed during low light conditions (dusk and dawn). They also prefer feeding during windy and rainy conditions. Spring is also spawning season for Walleye. Remember to check the Department of Natural Resources for size charts and limits on fish for that state.
Fall is another great time to go Walleye fishing. The cold water makes fish more enticed to eat and hunt. Walleye enjoy choppy water due to it making less light visibility in the water. This tactic is used as an advantage by the Walleye to get an edge on their prey. Thirty minutes before sunrise is a great time to aim for when fishing for Walleye. Walleye can feed through the night, but an hour after sunset is a good time to plan to pack in for the day.
Seasons do change but not drastically. Fall tends to land in late September lasting until the last week of December. While Spring tends to fall in the middle of March lasting until the middle of June. These are the best times to catch Walleye and to enjoy these delicious fish.
